Shasta College is an American two-year community college located in Redding, California founded in 1950. It later moved to a much bigger campus, while the original campus became the new location of Shasta High School.

Shasta College has approximately 8,865 students of all ages, including traditional college students, concurrently-enrolled high school students, older, re-entry students, and continuing education students who are simply taking classes for fun. The college has a wide variety of transfer-level and pre-transfer-level classes and programs, including art, physical education, social science, language arts, and science. It also offers a host of vocational programs including fire technology, nursing, and welding. Many recent high school graduates attend the college in order to transfer to universities after two years. Though many students commute to the college from their homes, the college is one of the few California Community Colleges with a dormitory. Shasta College has a strong athletic program offering numerous sports programs. The school mascot is a Knight.

Shasta College is perhaps best known for its music department, which includes a symphony orchestra, band, choir, music theory, piano and guitar classes. It is home to a community band that with over 100 members is one of the largest in the United States.

On August 20, 2007, Shasta College opened its doors to the new Health, Sciences & University Center in Downtown Redding. It is a subsidiary of CSU Chico, the Oregon Institute of Technology, and Southern Oregon University.
