And, although our physical campuses are currently closed, SCC is open virtually with our faculty and staff just an email or call away. Apply to SCC, or if you are a current student, contact your advisor to register for the classes you need today.

    During these uncertain times, one thing is certain - SCC is here to help you meet and succeed in all of your educational and career goals. 

  • Summer 2020 Class Types

    Our class offerings are available in several different formats. If you prefer a structured schedule with real-time lecture and an interactive classroom, the tradtional classroom or synchronous online option is for you.  If working at your own pace without lecture is your preference, choose online option. Class type is indicated when you select your courses:

    Traditional Classroom/Face-to-Face – Classes are held on campus, you select location when registering.

    H= Hybrid – Classes combine online learning and require on-campus meetings.          

    M= Mixture – Classes meet on campus with required use of online components for assignments.

    N = Online – Classes are delivered online so you can check in any time. Students are expected to meet assigned milestones during the course, studying at their own pace and preferred time. 

    S = Synchronous - These classes are online, too, but operate more like a traditional classroom. Students must meet at a designated time online to attend class. Synchronous classes are real-time, and adhere to a schedule like a traditional classroom where attendance is required.


    Not sure which option is best for you?

    Take this self-assessment quiz to see what learning style is likely best suited for you. If you are a current student, we also encourage you to reach out to your advisor to help you assess your learning style. 


  • Technology requirements for online

    Specific SCC course requirements will vary but the typical requirements for the synchronous classes will be a computing device (preferably a laptop or desktop PC) with a webcam (or an external webcam) and internet access. It is also recommended that students have a headset with a microphone. The virtual platforms that will be used include D2L Virtual Classroom and Zoom.
