|Senior Discount||Any Missouri resident 65 years of age or older (on or before August 1 of an academic year) may enroll tuition-free in credit courses at the college, based on available class space after tuition-paying students have enrolled. The scholarship does not cover special fees, books or materials. You will be required to present proof of age at the time of registration. All courses may be taken on a credit or audit basis, and all course prerequisites must be met prior to registration.|
|Missouri Veterans||To comply with the Missouri Returning Heroes Act, tuition charged to combat veterans will be limited to $50 per credit hour. Eligibility is determined for any program leading to an undergraduate certificate or an associate or baccalaureate degree. A "combat veteran" is any person who served in armed combat after Sept. 11, 2001, who was a Missouri resident when first entering the military, and who was discharged from military service under honorable conditions.
If you would like to apply, submit a copy of your most recent DD-214 (long form) and the Returning Heroes Education Act Application to the Enrollment Services Department, Room 1113 in the Administration Building. Your documentation will be reviewed to determine if you meet the criteria to be considered for reduced tuition. The Enrollment Services Department will determine the amount, if any, that your tuition will be reduced.
|Active Duty Military Personnel||To comply with the Higher Education Opportunity Act, SCC will charge in-state tuition rates for any member of the armed forces who is on active duty for a period of more than 30 days and whose domicile or permanent duty station is in Missouri. Eligibility is also extended to the service member's spouse or dependents. The in-state rate will apply so long as the service member, their spouse or dependent is continuously enrolled at SCC, not withstanding a subsequent change in the permanent duty station of the service member to a location outside of Missouri.|
In accordance to FERPA guidelines, any third party who wishes to register (add/drop) or make a payment for a student will need to be listed on an Authorization for Third Party Registration and Payments form that has been completed by the student. The forms can be found on the website at www.stchas.edu/home/forms-applications.html, or in the Enrollment Services or Student Development offices.
St. Charles Community College has contracted with an outside vendor, in order to provide our students with an alternative tuition payment plan that allows you to extend payments beyond the “last day to pay” for SCC students.
Per SCC Board Policy 417, the tuition refund policy is as follows:
Percentage of Refund
Time Frame of Refund
|100%||Day 1-7 of the semester|
|80%||Day 8-14 of the semester|
|60%||Day 15-21 of the semester|
NOTE: Refund amounts are determined by specific dates within each semester for all classes and will be prorated for courses less than 16 weeks in length. A full refund of tuition and fees is made if the college cancels a scheduled class.
See Tuition Refund Schedule for dates.

If you have never been an SCC student, you must complete an Application for Admissions and the Class Add/Drop form. Current students may register online. There are no prerequisites to get started with CPC 170: CCNA1.
You may pick and choose specific class sequences as you work towards certifications without working on earning a degree. However, if you plan to earn a degree, visit an academic counselor early in your training. All classes are for college credit and may be applied toward a degree program if you wish.
For more information, contact Mike Fuszner at firstname.lastname@example.org to set up a time to meet. You'll have a chance to talk about your background, experience, goals, take a brief tour and prepare to sign-up for classes if the program fits your educational needs.
Some classes fill up quickly. Students register on a first-come, first-serve basis. It is suggested that you register as soon as registration opens up each semester. Spring registration begins in late October; summer and fall registration begins in early April.
