The only thing you can really count on is change. There’s the kind you anticipate – high school graduation, college, new job, new family. And there’s the kind you dread – a lay-off, a divorce, a plan gone awry. And when change comes your way, you find ways to adapt.

You learn new things, make a new plan, take on a new challenge.

Education often has a role in big life changes. Whether it’s training for a promotion, retraining for a new job or setting out after a long-deferrered dream, SCC has classes and degree programs to move you toward your new goals. Choose part time or full-time, day or evening classes. Start small with a certificate or jump right into an associate’s degree and transfer to a four year institution.

SCC’s small classes, comprehensive services and caring teachers are here to help you learn – and change. Not sure what’s next? Take a look at this A-Z listing of SCC programs. You never know, something unexpected might catch your eye. And change your life.
