Educating a Brighter FutureĀ for More Than 50 Years

Chartered on February 6, 1964, Southeastern Community College (SCC) is a public, comprehensive community college providing accessible educational, cultural, and social opportunities for area adults. Over 100 occupational and liberal arts curriculum certificates, diplomas and degrees are offered by the college.

Classes are small, quality is high, and student services, such as counseling and tutoring, help students realize their potential. More than 1,800 students enroll in SCC’s college-credit courses annually. SCC provides a wide range of continuing education courses throughout Columbus County, serving more than 7,000 students annually. Through the college, enriching cultural events are brought to the area, and community services are provided for citizens of all ages.

The 251-acre campus is on the Chadbourn Highway between Whiteville and Chadbourn in southeastern North Carolina. SCC is a one-hour drive from historic cities of Wilmington and Fayetteville, North Carolina, as well as the beaches of both North and South Carolina.
