Transient Summer Students

    Before completing an SCC admissions application, you should:

    • Check with your college's registrar office to ensure the course you want to take at SCC will transfer to your home institution and meets your program's requirements.
    • Ensure that the class is being offered and is available during your desired term.

    Making Summer Plans?

    SCC offers 9-week and 5-week terms over the summer with online, hybrid and traditional classes.
