Advising/Enrollment

As a currently enrolled student, you are still able to register for the Summer and Fall 2020 semester once you have been advised by your faculty advisor. Since we are assisting students online and by phone, please contact your advisor about enrolling. If you have previously been advised through our Advising Center (CARE), you have now been transitioned to a faculty advisor in your program area. If you do not know who your assigned faculty advisor is, please check your PeopleSoft student self-service account. If you do not have an advisor assigned, please contact SCC_Care@kctcs.edu.  You may also check your self-service account to make sure you do not have any holds that will delay your registration. You will be able to view the SCC class schedule through your PeopleSoft student self-service. Please keep in mind, the earlier you register, the better class selection you will have.
