How To Register

Step One: Apply for Admission

All new students will first need to apply for admission to SCC. All new undergraduate students should also follow these additional steps for enrollment to SCC. Continuing SCC students can skip this step and move on to step two.

Step Two: Clear any Registration Holds

You should contact an admissions counselor to determine if you have any holds that will prevent you from registering for classes. Examples of registration holds include missing transcripts, unpaid fees, and academic advising requirements. Clearing registration holds as quickly as possible avoids delays in registration which can impact your chances of getting the classes and schedule that is best for you.

Step Three: Register for Classes

Once you have cleared any registration holds, you are ready to register for classes.  You can search for available classes by browsing a list of classes in PDF format in the appropriate curriculum class schedule. To be considered a full-time student, you must be registered for 12 or more credit hours. Anything less than 12 credit hours is considered part-time. Students are encouraged to refer to the Course Numbering Scheme when registering.

Step Four: Pay Tuition and Fees

Once you are registered, you can pay your tuition and fees. More information concerning how tuition and fees are calculated and important deadlines for paying tuition and fees is available online at Tuition and Fees.

Step Five: Purchase Textbooks

You can view the booklist and purchase textbooks at the SCC Bookstore.

Step Six: Acquire Student ID and Parking Permit
