The graduation rate value includes only programs that were completed less than six years for four-year degrees or less than three years for two-year degrees.

Graduation rate is the percentage of institution’s new-entering, first-time, first-year undergraduate students who complete their program within 150% of the published time for the program. Graduation rate excludes an extensive number of students. This index doesn’t take into account students of nontraditional enrollments - part-time students, students who enroll mid-year, and who transfer from one institution to another. So graduation rate alone can create a misleading picture. Completion rate in the form of total number of students receiving any types of awards/degrees creates a complete picture. Combining this data with graduation rate is a better way to compare educational institutions.

Great staff, great faculty, and great tuition!

Overall Rating:

Wonderful selection of classes, and it's sooo much cheaper than going straight to a 4-year university. I have two degrees from here. One way to save some money is to buy or rent your books online, as the book-store is typically very pricy. Most of the professors are on staff as-needed, so you can get some that are amazing, and some that are simply qualified. But you really get out what you invest in your own learning. This was a great launchpad in my educational experience. The library staff are also very helpful, and the campus is clean and well maintained. They even have a garden in the back, maintained by the horticulture students. There are wonderful spots throughout to study and elevate your learning to new heights!

I'm currently enrolled in my second semester here at SCC and I really enjoy it. My professors are great and I've never had a problem with getting any questions answered or issues resolved. Tuition is affordable compared to some other universities in the area. I personally think any college/university people attend is going to have its pros and cons so as long as you're open-minded and dedicated to get a degree, I think you'd enjoy attending SCC.

It's a great school for transferring to USC upstate bachelors program. Cost is much more affordable, although getting an education is expensive regardless. All of my teachers have been great so far.., The financial aid office is usually very pleasant regardless of being hounded at the beginning of every semester. If you're looking for a certificate program they offer a plenty, and if you're looking to get an associates degree they offer that as well... if you were like me, wanting to pursue a bachelors degree program, this is a great place to get started (and I highly recommend taking as many classes as possible before you transfer to a university because they charge so many additional fees and they add up tremendously). Scc has been a money saver!!!

The financial aid staff are THE most incompetent employees I've ever seen. People at Wal-Mart have better work ethic than they do. I've had to sign, re-sign, and call probably 50 times in the last 2 months to just send in paperwork. Each time you send something in, they won't tell you somethings wrong with it till a week or 2 later, so they just waste your time. And when you call financial aid it's going to a call center, so they don't even k ow what's going on, and only tell you it'll take up to 2 weeks for papers to process. If you aren't paying out of pocket, d ont even waste your time, just call or email the financial aid counselors and have them help you. I don't know where tuition goes to, but it certainly isn't towards better financial aid staff who laugh at people who ask for help.
