In 1965, funds were provided to Belmont County by the Appalachian Regional Commission to construct a post-secondary technical institute in blog.becaps.life
During the winter of 1969-70, the first classes were taught in the evening in temporary facilities located in St. Clairsville, while the Main Building was being constructed. Full-time instruction
began in Fall 1970.
The Institute’s first Board of Trustees was sworn into office on May 28, 1971, and a State Charter was granted to Belmont Technical Institute on May 21, 1971, allowing the Institute to serve Belmont, Harrison, and Monroe
Counties. The Main Building was completed later that summer in time for the second year of full-time instruction. On December 21, 1971, the Board of Trustees changed the Institute’s name to Belmont Technical College.
