Somerset Community College (SCC) students planning to attend classes at any of SCCs campuses and centers can register now for Spring 2017 classes. Spring classes begin Monday, January 9, 2017.
Now is the perfect time for new or returning students to register for classes, said Tracy Casada, SCC dean of student affairs. Many times students wait to register and run the risk of having delays in financial aid distribution or getting into the classes they need. Registering early allows us to work with those students to ensure they are on the right path when they begin, or continue, their college career.
The SCC centers in Casey and Clinton Counties are open on Monday and Wednesday from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. (EST for Casey and CST for Clinton). The McCreary and Russell County centers are open Tuesday and Thursdays from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. (EST for McCreary and CST for Russell). Library hours are held at each center and the centers are often open later for student computer lab use and later classes.
Students enrolled at any of our centers have the opportunity to take more classes than previously offered because we are delivering more through ITV (distance learning). Students enrolled in online classes may utilize computer labs at the center on the days the center is in operation, said Dr. Tony Honeycutt, SCC provost.
According to Dr. Honeycutt, the classes scheduled for each center include approximately 15 credit hours (five courses) for first year (freshman) students and another 15 credit hours for second year (sophomore) students during the two days the center is open, allowing students at various points in their education to obtain the general education classes needed for a degree. Schedules for other programs at the centers, such as Cosmetology, Practical Nursing and Culinary Arts, may vary.
How to Register
Students who are already enrolled at SCC should meet with their advisor to register for Spring 2017 classes.
Applying to SCC is free and can be done online by visiting Somerset.kctcs.edu. Upon admission to the college, new SCC students will receive information on new student orientation.First time freshmen can complete an orientation, which can be done online, before registering for classes at SCC. After orientation, students will work with an advisor to determine which classes to take, depending on the preferred path of study. Advising and financial aid appointments will be available at each center through the start of the Spring semester.
