SCC's Culinary/Hospitality program is 110 quarter credit hours and the average student completes it in 8 quarters. Students may also attend part-time. The majority of classes are offered in the daytime, and students are employed in the evenings and weekends in the food service industry. Many students in the program choose to complete more than one focus, which is fairly easily accomplished and gives them a better background and enhanced marketability. Students gain hands-on practical experience by preparing and serving luncheons and dinners in the restaurant located on the Lincoln Campus. Graduates from the Food Service Management focus may receive their diploma from the National Restaurant Association Hospitality Education Foundation if they have completed all the designated NRA course finals with a minimum 75 percent, have completed all the designated NRA diploma classes and have accompanied work experience.
