Odessa College, informally referred to as OC, is a public two-year junior college based in Odessa, Texas, United States serving the people of Ector County and the Permian Basin. It was established in 1946 and currently enrolls about 5,000 annually in its university-parallel and occupational/technical courses, and 11,000 students annually in its Basic Education, Continuing Education, and Community Recreation courses.

Odessa College is home to KXWT, a National Public Radio member station.

As defined by the Texas Legislature, the official service area of Odessa College is the following:

In 1999, an Odessa doctor and his wife donated a 27,000-square-foot (2,500 m2) building in Pecos to house the new Pecos Technical Training Center of Odessa College. After renovations to the building made possible by an $860,000 Economic Development Administration grant, the center now houses administrative and faculty offices, technical and vocational learning labs and a student lounge. The new center enables OC to improve and expand its long-established extension education program in Pecos.
