A SCC degree measures up to high standards.

Why is accreditation important?

Accreditation is important for two reasons. First, it assures SCC students that they are receiving an education that meets the high standards of an independent organization.

Secondly, since SCC is accredited to award associate degrees, an SCC degree is automatically recognized and accepted by all public or private four-year colleges and universities in Kentucky.
