General Announcements

Are you at risk of losing your financial aid? Enrollment Services (Financial Aid) is hosting a Suspension Prevention event. Take a proactive approach to financial literacy, academic support and retention. There are multiple seminars during mid-October hosted in Student Center Room 205. You only have to attend one seminar, but you must sign up in Enrollment Services Room 1113 or 1204. Seminars are Oct. 13-Oct. 24. 

Pre-advising began Monday, Sept. 29, for the Spring 2015 Semester. All students are encouraged to pre-advise, but it is required of all A+ Scholarship recipients and student athletes. Meeting with an academic counselor will assist you with selecting the best courses suited for your goals of transferring to a four-year university or completing a two-year career program at SCC. To pre-advise, register online for an appointment at stchas.edu/appointment. Registration opens for current and returning students on Oct. 20.

Throughout the fall semester, when you spend $5 or more at the Café-Bookstore or Scooter's Place you will get a "Scooter Token." Students can redeem their tokens for a pack of three donut holes, a cookie or a 16 oz. fountain drink/refill. The current items are offered until Nov. 7 or while supplies last.
