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.
