Returning Adult Students

Returning Adult Students - Let us help you take your education to the next degree!

Welcome to SCCC! This is an exciting time for you as you begin or come back to finish your college degree. We hope that we can help you take advantage of all the wonderful opportunities and services that SCCC offers.

Why Choose SCCC?
Adult Students will find they are not alone at SCCC. Over a third of our students are over the age of 25 with diverse educational backgrounds ranging from first-generation college students to those with previous degrees looking to update their skills.

We also understand that many returning adults have other life and family commitments and your time is valuable. We’ll help you determine the best course of action to meet your goals whether you’re looking to update your skills, complete a certificate or degree program, or you simply enjoy learning new things.
