Why Choose SCCC Albany?

While Schenectady County Community College celebrates its 45th year as an integral resource in the Capital Region, its satellite – the beautiful new SCCC Albany location on the second floor of the Albany County Office Building at 112 State Street – is still in its first year.

Already, excitement has been growing at SCCC Albany along with the programming there. So far, SCCC has been approved by SUNY to offer coursework in Nanoscale Materials Technology, Alternative Energy Technology, Casino and Gaming Management, Chemical Dependency Counseling, Hospitality and Tourism Management, Medical Coding and Billing, Paralegal Studies and Supply Chain Management.

SCCC Albany boasts modern classrooms with wireless access, a computer lab and smart boards, along with its prime location in the heart of downtown Albany. SCCC Albany students get personal attention from caring professors in classes with low student-to-faculty ratios.

This summer, SCCC Albany is offering credit courses in a wide range of subjects, from Psychology to Advanced Computing. At just $141 per credit for NYS residents, these courses are sure to be popular for students who attend or plan to attend a four-year college and need credits to get ahead. Like all SCCC students, SCCC Albany students have access to free CDTA bus service and free parking. Classes start June 2.

This all complements SCCC’s robust non-credit offerings in Albany. SCCC’s popular Health Profession Opportunity Grant-funded Certified Nursing Assistant program operates at 220 Green Street and 175 Central Avenue in Albany. Later this year, SCCC, in partnership with Trinity Alliance, the Albany Housing Authority, and other local colleges, will offer culinary courses and logistics training at the Capital South Campus Center.

“I'm a full-time student, and proudly enrolled in the Educational Opportunity Program at SCCC. For my major I'm working on getting my degree in Human Services and certificate in Health Studies, on my way to getting my nursing degree. I'm currently attending classes in Albany County which makes it easier for me to get to work right after class, rather than fighting the traffic. Thank you SCCC for making it convenient for me and everyone else to achieve their goals!"
