Invest in yourself. No trust fund is required. Value and versatility are hallmarks of an SCC education. You can rise to the challenge of higher education here without the fear of falling into a mound of debt.
You may not live on campus, but our campus has plenty of life. The life you live outside the classroom is as important to your education as lectures, papers and projects. Get involved the choices are many!
At SCC there is a higher degree of community. You don't have to be a student to be a part of the college. We're as connected to our community as we are committed to our students. Hey, it's in our name.
At SCC we strive to do our best to ensure educational success for some of the nation’s best and brightest students – our service members and veterans.
We are honored to partner with an active Student Veterans Organization to conduct various campus activities year-round, including a full Veterans Week in the fall. In May we host a Medaling Ceremony to recognize graduating service members and veterans.
With a dedicated veteran services coordinator (who is a veteran), a Student Veterans Lounge and hundreds of military-affiliated students attending SCC, service members and veterans here are never far from their peers.
Here's what you need to know to make the admissions process as smooth as possible:
Request that your military transcript and official transcripts from all previously attended institutions be sent to SCC. Submit a Request for Evaluation of Transfer Credit in your MySCC portal.
(Under Quick Links > Eforms > Forms > “Request for Evaluation of Transfer Credit”)
Submit a VA Certification Request in your MySCC portal
(under Quick Links > Eforms > Forms > "Certify My VA Benefit")
Pay tuition and fees in full. See below; failure to make arrangements may result in being dropped from your registered courses.
If you are a student using VA Chapter 33 Post 9/11 GI Bill or VA Chapter 31 Vocational Rehabilitation and Employment, you will be held in your courses upon receipt of your VA Certification Request (“Certify My VA Benefit” in step 5 above) or authorization from your VA counselor. Please complete this request for each semester you would like reported to the VA, and ASAP after you register for courses.
If you are a student using Military Tuition Assistance or National Guard Educational Assistance, you will be held in your courses upon submitting an authorization document from your military branch.
Students receiving education benefits under any of the following can either a) pay for courses in full at time of registration; or b) enroll in a Nelnet Deferred Payment Plan, which can be selected on the VA Certification Request:
VA Chapter 30 Montgomery GI Bill – Active Duty
VA Chapter 35 Dependents Education Assistance
VA Chapter 1606 Montgomery GI Bill — Selected Reserve
