Non-High School Graduate

  • If you are at least 18 years of age, but have not earned a high school diploma or a GED, you may apply for admission into selected industrial technology certificate programs only. These programs include welding, machine tool technology, or HVAC and refrigeration technology. It is also required that you enroll in and complete an adult education program to receive a GED before graduating from any SCC program. We encourage you to contact an admissions specialist to help you in your admissions process.
