What other information do I need to know?
- Some schools, such as the
University of Nebraska-Lincoln, require a student
to have taken certain high school classes for admission. If you do
not have all the high school admission requirements, you may take
those classes with SCC.
- Many courses at SCC have
prerequisites. A prerequisite may be a placement
test score (ACT or Compass) or another course. All English and math
courses, some science courses, most psychology courses, and most
sociology courses have prerequisites. Prerequisites are important
and must be done!
- The Academic Transfer program
has full-time advisors as well as faculty advisors. A student may
see any advisor she/he wishes. You should see an advisor if you
have any questions about registering for classes, prerequisites,

transfer college six to nine months before you plan to begin
classes there. Include an official transcript from SCC as part of
your application. You may arrange for a transcript to be mailed
