I'm currently enrolled in my second semester here at SCC and I really enjoy it. My professors are great and I've never had a problem with getting any questions answered or issues resolved. Tuition is affordable compared to some other universities in the area. I personally think any college/university people attend is going to have its pros and cons so as long as you're open-minded and dedicated to get a degree, I think you'd enjoy attending SCC.
My son goes to SCC and he likes it alot better than high school.
It's a great school for transferring to USC upstate bachelors program. Cost is much more affordable, although getting an education is expensive regardless. All of my teachers have been great so far.., The financial aid office is usually very pleasant regardless of being hounded at the beginning of every semester. If you're looking for a certificate program they offer a plenty, and if you're looking to get an associates degree they offer that as well... if you were like me, wanting to pursue a bachelors degree program, this is a great place to get started (and I highly recommend taking as many classes as possible before you transfer to a university because they charge so many additional fees and they add up tremendously). Scc has been a money saver!!!
The teachers here do not respond in a timely manner. Never within 24hrs like they say and sometimes even after repetitive emails throughout the week. It's a good school with good programs just not much of an effort to communicate with the instructors.
This is a community college so I didn't expect too much when I moved here from out of state. But the fact that I was completely unable to get in touch with a guidance counselor to schedule my classes BEFORE moving here was frustrating and absolutely a problem in their system which needs addressed. To clarify, I was only unable to complete registration because students who are in person are "first priority". It should not be so difficult for out-of-state students to get registered. The entire campus shuts down at 1:30 on Fridays. For someone who needs a quiet place to study with resources at hand, that's frustrating; never mind it just being an absurd thing to do unless it's a holiday weekend. Finally, it seems that the entire school (every campus) has a no-electronic device policy which is even more absurd in our day. I really appreciated the use of my iPad for taking notes during class or quickly googling definitions during a lecture. I pay to come here and be taught. We're not in public high school anymore. If I want to use my devices because it's what I like best, I will use my devices. Further, if I want to waste my money by using my phone to text (without disturbing others) during a class which I payed for, I have that right. Get real people. Treat your students like children and they will be children; breeding irresponsibility.
Please save your money and time and DO NOT GO HERE. The staff and teachers are pathetic, this place doesn't even deserve to have "college" anywhere in it's name. This place is terrible, over 3/4 of their classes use the high school grading scale. I'm sorry i thought this was a community college? Teachers shouldn't be teaching here, and i pray that you save your time and money and do not go here. Oh, and the staff are the most unhelpful people i've ever met. Just a bunch of jiggaboos acting like this is a hair salon.
I will start with saying most of my classes were exciting and fun, but there was one class where the professor didn't know how to teach, and when I got answers on my work right, she counted them wrong for not using the right formula or even just showing a little too much work. What I hated was that halfway through the first semester, some councilor said I couldn't major in Anthropology because the university I was transferring to didn't have the major; thus, I was only going to graduate with an Associates in Science, something I didn't want to be in college for. There was nothing I wanted for that degree. So, I dropped out. I wish I was told that before registering. I did check that the university had the major, but it's whatever now. SCC really wasn't somewhere I wanted to be in the end.
Wonderful selection of classes, and it's sooo much cheaper than going straight to a 4-year university. I have two degrees from here. One way to save some money is to buy or rent your books online, as the book-store is typically very pricy. Most of the professors are on staff as-needed, so you can get some that are amazing, and some that are simply qualified. But you really get out what you invest in your own learning. This was a great launchpad in my educational experience. The library staff are also very helpful, and the campus is clean and well maintained. They even have a garden in the back, maintained by the horticulture students. There are wonderful spots throughout to study and elevate your learning to new heights!
The Horticulture program here is better than the one at Clemson University. And the teachers in that department are the Best!
My son took the Horticulture program there and loved it. His experience there was a decision well made. The instructors were great and were genuinely concerned about the students' progress in the program. He liked the instructors there and enjoyed the program enough that he made the best grades there that he did all through school. After proving himself by making good grades his first semester, he obtained scholarships through the Financial Aid office that helped us financially to get through the rest of his time there. He did a summer internship through the school program and the company asked him to stay on part time while he finished the remainder of the classes that he needed to graduate. He stayed with this company after graduating and worked his way up to manager in less than a year.
Called so that I could leave a message for my family member, told they couldn't do it, transferred me to security and then hung up right when they answered, called back multiple times, no answer.
Every semester I have gone to this school there has been an issue. Whether it be instructors posting out of date instructions for assignments online for current students or FA issues. They advertise online degree programs but there has not been one semester that I didnt have to go to the school for something. For English classes you have to go to their TLC to get your papers Grammar checked by someone, and get you a little slip saying they did.....then PDF all that and email to your teacher...makes sense. For the Math classes you have to go to the testing center, but quizzes and HW is ok to do online through Pearsons. None of that is listed on the descriptions of the class before you enroll, so that is pretty misleading of them. If you do go to class, dont expect many of the teachers to help you because "they are not paid for that" they will tell you to go to the TLC to get help. All they do is read exactly what is in the book you bought, that you may or may not have to use...which you wont find out until after you have opened it or its too late to get a FULL refund (even if unopened, few days time limit on that). So dont think any of their online degree programs are online only, its more of a hybrid school. Some of the computer classes for most of their online degrees are only taught in either the Spring/Fall semester and you have to attend class at the main campus. So all in all it aint much of an online degree if I have to go to your school for anything. Prices are decent. Supposed credit transfers to some 4 year schools if you want to get a BS, but we shall see about that when my son tries to xfer to USC.
Great staff, great faculty, and great tuition!
Great school for a tech degree. My son went here and we were able to save a lot of money.
The financial aid staff are THE most incompetent employees I've ever seen. People at Wal-Mart have better work ethic than they do. I've had to sign, re-sign, and call probably 50 times in the last 2 months to just send in paperwork. Each time you send something in, they won't tell you somethings wrong with it till a week or 2 later, so they just waste your time. And when you call financial aid it's going to a call center, so they don't even k ow what's going on, and only tell you it'll take up to 2 weeks for papers to process. If you aren't paying out of pocket, d ont even waste your time, just call or email the financial aid counselors and have them help you. I don't know where tuition goes to, but it certainly isn't towards better financial aid staff who laugh at people who ask for help.
Made for a long day
Good luck trying to get anything done ever. from the website being a labyrinth to half the staff not knowing what they are doing majority of the time. I do not know why I am still going here.
GO TO UPSTATE IF YOU WANT A GOOD EDUCATION, THATS WHY THIS SCHOOL IS CHEAP BECAUSE THE STAFF SUCKS!! ALL OF THEM FROM THE DEAN TO THE MATH TEACHER MRS CRYSTAL FORD!! I HATE THIS SCHOOL!! THE TEACHERS ARE INCOMPETENT AND MANY OF THEM ONCE WERE STUDENTS THEMSELVES. THEY ISSUE REFUND CHECKS AT THE END OF THE SEMESTER WHICH MAKE THE STUDENTS WHO NEED THE MONEY TO ASSIST WITH ANYTHING OUT SIDE OF THEIR HIGH BOOKSTORE PRICES WILL HAVE TO SUFFER!! I CANT STRESS ENOUGH HOW I HATE HATE HATE THIS SCHOOL!!
Horrible admissions staff. Very unfriendly and they make enrollment next to impossible. Look elsewhere for college.
This place is awful, I would never recommend anyone I mean ANYONE to come here, the staff are very poor in their helpfulness of the students. The teachers are great but admissions, advisors, and financial aid staffs are horrid, they don't get anything done for anyone and send you running with your head chopped off to every other person. It is simply ridiculous, they can never discuss anything with you thoroughly enough and are never willing to listen to what you have to say as long as it's in favor to them then they will do their best. Just out there to make money! DO NOT COME TO THIS SCHOOL!
Mike received his introduction to the technical Honor Society March 17th 2017 today
best school ever.
SCC helped me obtain my AAS Early Childhood Education degree. It is very helpful in that it is not too big that you become a # w/o a face. The instructor are very willing to help you succeed. I Loved It!! Recommend It!!
People were very helpful with the tour on the campus
I am loving my school so far. I am in the Respiratory Therapy Program and it is one of the highest ranked in the nation...
