  • As the liaison between Southeast Community College and your students, your role in the college search process is very important. Your guidance in the application process is critical to the success of your students. We want to make your job easier as you help students navigate the college selection process with the following resources. If you have any questions, please contact us at admissions@southeast.edu.

    Thank you for all you do! Let’s get started.

  • The first step in the process is to explore our 60 programs of study and find the right one for your student. Search our Program pages and/or download our Career Cluster Brochure to get them started on their Path to Possible.

    We know the best way to experience campus is to visit either in person or virtually. Our Admissions team is available to connect with you or your students to discuss our Programs of Study, the application process, financial aid, life on campus and more. Your campus visit options are:

    • Virtual Tour
    • Virtual Events
    • Career Days
    • Individual Tour
    • One-on-one Appointment

    We are also available to come to you and your students via Zoom to talk about specific enrollment topics including:

    • Know How 2 Go
    • SCC Admissions Information
    • Specific SCC Programs of Study Presentations with an SCC instructor
    • Focus2Apply

    Finally, we invite you and your students to join us on one of our Program Showcase Webinars to help guide your students on their Path to Possible. These webinars are a great opportunity to learn about career paths, what to expect as a student and how we can help them achieve their goals. Check out our upcoming Program Showcase Webinar schedule and register for as many as you would like.

    All applicants must complete an online application whether they are seeking a degree, diploma or certificate.
    We have created a New Student Checklist (PDF) to make your student’s path to SCC as seamless as possible.
    Your student will want to find out what test scores (PDF) they will need for enrollment into a specific program of study. Once they know their requirement, they can decide which test they would like to take (ACT, SAT, Next Generation Accuplacer or Accuplacer). We can help them take the Next Generation Accuplacer course placement test for Reading and Math on any of our campuses in the Testing Center or at one of our Learning Centers. To learn more about the Next Generation ACCUPLACER® or schedule a test at one of our facilities, visit our Testing Center page.
    You will want to know the cost per credit hour for tuition and fees as well as housing and meal plan options for our Beatrice and Milford campuses.
    Check with our Financial Aid and Scholarships Office to learn about the variety of federal, state and SCC specific financial assistance available for your student.
    From a student’s first day on campus to their graduation day, our Career Services staff is there to help them achieve their career goals. Career Services does everything from helping a student write a resume to working on their interviewing skills to connecting them with employment opportunities on our job board. We also publish an annual Graduate Report (PDF) which details employment data including starting salary or if student’s transfer to a four-year institution. This information is from the previous academic year.

    College Advising Model: Advisors are a student’s guide once they are admitted to SCC until they graduate and beyond. We designed our advising services to create an educational plan to fit a student’s academic, career and personal goals on their Path to Possible. A student’s first contact will be with a College Advisor who works with them once they are admitted. They will be connected with a Program Advisor starting with their second term. Visit Advising to learn more.

    Associate of Health Sciences Program: There is an increasing need for health care professionals so we created two distinct pathways for students interested in pursing a career in this field. Our General Studies pathway gives students the opportunity to learn about all career options in health care fields offered at SCC. Our Transfer pathway is for student’s planning to transfer to a four-year institution for a specific program. Visit Associate of Health Sciences to learn more.

    Early Childhood Education AA: Our Associate of Arts degree is for students planning to complete the first two years of a bachelor’s degree in the education field before transferring to a four-year institution.
