Spartanburg Community College is an unparalleled resource for education, whether you are starting fresh or starting over. It’s your local, flexible, and affordable option to prepare for your career.

It’s also your source of support. With family and job responsibilities, students have a lot on their plates. That’s why SCC offers a wide range of student services.

Advising

Need a game plan? Your first stop is SCC Enrollment Services to speak to one of our friendly academic advisors!

If you’re considering classes but you aren’t sure where to begin, take an interest and skills inventory. We’ll identify your aptitudes, careers that match your interests, and help plan out your program of study.

Give Student Services a call at 864-592-4990, visit us online at sccsc.edu/advising, or come in for a face-to-face meeting on campus. We’re located in Terhune Student Services Building, room 174.
