Olympic College is an urban-based, but rural- and urban-serving, 2-year public institution in Bremerton, in the U.S. state of Washington.

Olympic College opened its doors as Olympic Junior College on September 5, 1946. The main building was located in Bremerton, Washington. They had 575 students (423 men and 152 women) and the tuition was $35 per quarter or students had the option to pay for three quarters in advanced for $75.

Olympic College serves Kitsap and Mason counties in Washington. The college's service area contains two major naval installations: Naval Base Kitsap and Naval Hospital Bremerton.

The college's main campus is a 33-acre (13 ha) site located in Bremerton, Washington, and its two satellite campuses are located in Poulsbo and Shelton, Washington. The Poulsbo campus is a 20-acre (8.1 ha) site and is 15.9 miles (25.6 km) from the main campus, while the 27-acre (11 ha) Shelton campus is located 38.4 miles (61.8 km) from the main campus. These three campuses serve more than 12,000 students a year mainly from the 281,374 residents of Kitsap and Mason counties spread over 1,617 square miles (4,190 km2) of wooded and lowland mountain terrain (Census 2000).

The land for both the Shelton and Poulsbo campuses was donated. The 27 acres of land that is now the Shelton campus was donated by Simpson Timber in 1991 and the 20 acres of land that is now the Poulsbo campus was donated by the Olhava Family in 1993.

In spite of being 7 miles (11 km) from downtown Seattle with its diverse metropolitan population, Kitsap and Mason counties' populations are predominantly white (84% Kitsap and 89% Mason), mostly between the ages of 25–54 (41% Kitsap and 45% Mason), and slightly more male (51% Kitsap and 52% Mason). From this service population base, Olympic College's student body demographically by largest represented groups are predominantly full time (59%), between the ages of 20–29 (37.7%), female (56%) and white (73%).

The school motto is, "Cogita, Aspira, Aude, Perade (think, aspire, dare, achieve)."

Olympic College has attracted dignitaries and well-known performers during its history. Harry S Truman, the 33rd President of the United States, visited Bremerton and Olympic College (then known as Olympic Junior College) in 1948. He received the first honorary degree from the college that year.

They have also recently created a 4-year degree in Nursing.

For their inaugural season in 2012, the Kitsap Admirals used the Bremer Student Center as their home venue. The team has since relocated to more suburban Silverdale at Olympic High School.
