Expectations and Policies
In college, no matter the student’s age, educational rights are limited solely to the student. Parents have no inherent right to inspect their son’s or daughter’s educational records. Learn more information on the FERPA page.
Dual credit students are college students. Therefore, dual credit students are expected to perform at the college level and are responsible for their own education. The college-level expectations include regular attendance and active class participation, meeting class objectives and deadlines, seeking academic help, utilizing the mySCC portal including responding to email and addressing any concerns directly with their instructors.
Accreditation and Transferring Credits
SCC is accredited by the Higher Learning Commission. SCC has many transfer agreements with other colleges and universities. Students are responsible for consulting with other college institutions about transfer policies.
For more information about transferring credit to SCC, from another institution or to send SCC transcripts to another institution, view the information on Grades, Transcripts & Academic Records.
Tuition, Textbooks and Payment
The partnering high school determines if the school district or the student is responsible for tuition, fees, textbooks and other class-related materials. Contact your high school for more information.
Textbook information can be found through the SCC Bookstore or in the course syllabus. Information regarding the bookstore is available on the college website.
Payment for dual credit courses must be made before the deadline, or students will be dropped from their class(s) and high school credits could be affected.
Dual Credit Admissions Process
- Students should complete the Dual Credit Application with the parent signature.
- Submit the form to the high school and request that they send the form along with a transcript to the dual credit coordinator at SCC.
- Submit ACT scores.
- An email confirmation will be sent along with a fee waiver code for the SCC Application for Admission.
- Complete the SCC Application for Admission. Enter the fee waiver code to eliminate the $10 application fee.
We hope students are successful; however, if a student is considering dropping, please first review the drop deadline, refund schedule and contact your high school to determine how this will impact high school credits and graduation. If a student decides to drop a course(s), they should complete a registration form and only include the class(s) to drop. Then email the form to firstname.lastname@example.org.
