You did it, or you soon will.
Graduating from high school, or getting your GED or HiSET certificate, is no small feat.
And enrolling at SCC is a step towards a career you can be proud of. In just two years, you could leave prepped and ready with an associate degree. Or, if you're like most SCC students, you'll have your gen eds behind you and sprint to the finish at a traditional four-year college or university.
If you are looking to get a jump on credits, you may want to dual-enroll in college classes – an option for high school juniors and seniors. Just check out the Steps to Dual Enroll at SCC and you're on your way.
Here's what you need to know to apply:
- You can apply any time during the year.
- First, you'll need to complete an Application for Admission. (A+ Scholarship student? Make sure you read this.)
- Request your high school transcript, GED certification or HiSet certification to be sent to SCC.
- If you are graduating high school early, please have your counselor submit an Early Out letter to SCC or bring the Early Out letter with you to your academic advising appointment.
- Apply for financial aid and scholarships. If you're receiving the A+ Scholarship, get in touch with the Financial Aid Office and let your academic counselor know.
- Take the Academic Skills Assessment and View the SCC placement tool.
- Schedule an appointment to meet with an academic counselor and register for classes. Together you'll review your test results and the counselor will help you select courses.
- Sign up for College 101 (COL 101) – Yeah, it's a thing. If you're a first-time freshman you'll need to take "College Success Seminar" (COL 101). Students who withdraw from COL 101 will have a "hold" put on their registration for the following semester. For all the details, go to Academic Counseling.
- Pay tuition and fees in full. You'll be dropped from all of your courses if you fail to pay your tuition in full by the due date, so read this closely:
- Tuition/fee information
- In-district and out-of-district Information
(Once you've been admitted to SCC, you can save time by paying online via mySCC student portal.)
- Get your picture ID and parking tag.
- Buy your textbooks.
- Login to mySCC portal. This is where you'll access student tools like Canvas, CougarMail, Tech Help Desk and SCC Connection (grades, GPA, register for classes, etc.). You can also find campus announcements, news and events in the portal.
