It's our turn to serve you.

At SCC we strive to do our best to ensure educational success for some of the nation’s best and brightest students – our service members and veterans.

We are honored to partner with an active Student Veterans Organization to conduct various campus activities year-round, including a full Veterans Week in the fall. In May we host a Medaling Ceremony to recognize graduating service members and veterans.

With a dedicated veteran services coordinator (who is a veteran), a Student Veterans Lounge and hundreds of military-affiliated students attending SCC, service members and veterans here are never far from their peers.

Here's what you need to know to make the admissions process as smooth as possible:

  1. Complete an SCC Application for Admission.
  2. Submit a Request for Transfer Evaluation Form (if sending transcripts) and declare a degree. This is important – transcripts sent to SCC without this form won't be automatically evaluated.

    About two weeks after we receive your transcripts, you'll receive a transfer evaluation report showing which courses were accepted.
  3. Take the Academic Skills Assessment.

    ACT PLACEMENT SCORE INFORMATION: If you achieved at least the following minimum ACT sub-test scores, congratulations - you are NOT required to take the Academic Skills Assessment for that subject.
    21
    ACT score in English for automatic placement in ENG 101.
    18
    ACT score in reading for a reading course not to be required.
    Use placement tool to determine your first math course

    Please bring a copy of your high school transcript and ACT scores with you in case they're not already loaded into our system.

  4. A couple of things you need to know:
    • If you are currently a high school student or graduated in the last 3 years, if you placed high enough in one subject to waive the assessment test, but not in another, you'll need to take the assessment test for that particular subject area.
    • ACT Scores and High School GPA's are valid for three years.
  5. Meet with the coordinator of veteran services and register for classes.
  6. Request that your military transcript and official transcripts from EACH educational institution you've attended be sent to the SCC Enrollment Services Department.
  7. Visit Academic Advising to get enrolled in classes. Take time to meet with the coordinator of veteran services in ADM 1113 to discuss VA education funding
  8. Enroll in our crash course for college – if you're a first-time freshman you're required to take "College Success Seminar" (COL-101).

    Important: Students who withdraw from COL 101 will have a "hold" put on their registration for the following semester. Have questions? Contact an advisor.

  9. Attend the New Veteran Orientation or COL 101 – if you're a first-time freshman you're required to take "College Success Seminar" (COL-101).

    Students who withdraw from COL 101 will have a "hold" put on their registration for the following semester. Have questions? Visit Academic Counseling.
  10. Submit a Veteran Certification Request Form.
  11. Pay tuition and fees in full. You'll be dropped from all your courses if you fail to pay your tuition in full by the due date.
    • If you're receiving education benefits under Chapter 31 (Vocational Rehab) or Chapter 33 (Post 9/11), your classes will be held upon receipt of your Veteran Certification Request Form. This request needs to be completed seven business days prior to the payment due date to secure your courses.
    • Students receiving education benefits under any of the following are required to pay for courses by the tuition payment deadline:
      • Chapter 30
      • Chapter 35
      • Chapter 1606
