After Applying, What's Next?

  • “I’ve completed the Application for Admission. Now what?”

    Here is a list of things to consider after being admitted to SCC!


    Icon-Money1. Apply for Financial Aid & Scholarships

    Financial Aid »


    Financial Aid: Financial aid is money available from federal, and state resources, from Southeast Community College, and from private sources to help students and their families pay for attending SCC. Financial aid will help pay for direct educational costs such as tuition, fees and textbooks, as well as personal living expenses like housing, food and transportation. To begin the process, submit your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) early. The FAFSA  is the primary application for all federal aid, as well as some state and institutional financial aid programs. Applicants will need their most recent W-2 form(s) and most recent tax return information. The application can be completed at www.fafsa.ed.gov. The school code for SCC is 007591.

    Financial Aid Orientation: Students who are awarded financial aid must complete a mandatory financial aid orientation. This orientation can be completed either online or by attending an on-campus session. Students who complete the orientation online will need access to a printer. Information about the financial aid orientation can be found here: https://www.southeast.edu/FAO/

    Scholarships: SCC’s goal is to make higher education accessible to as many qualified students as possible. With more than 80 percent of students attending SCC accepting some form of financial aid, scholarships are a great supplement. SCC awards scholarships to students based on need, academic ability or a combination of both. More information about our scholarship program can be found at www.southeast.edu/Scholarships.

    New Student Orientation » 


    Learn about all things SCC!
     
    As a new student at SCC, you will be invited to participate in a new student orientation before registering for classes. For students on the Beatrice and Milford campuses, new student orientation is held a few weeks before your first quarter starts. Notification of event dates and times will be sent through the mail.

    For the Lincoln Campus, students will be sent information about completing the new student orientation either in person or online at www.southeast.edu/nso.


    Icon-Register5. Register for Classes

     


    Students who are accepted to a program of study will be contacted by the College about registering for classes. Many programs allow new students to register without meeting with an advisor. In these instances, students can register online without coming to campus or they can turn in a paper registration form directly to the Registration and Records office. Academic advisors are available! Full-time faculty at SCC also serve as advisors for students in their program. In addition, there are three full-time advisors in the Academic Transfer program and one full-time Pre-Health advisor. It is strongly recommended that incoming students meet with their advisor to discuss their program of study. Academic advising can help build a relationship with a valuable support person on campus, insuring that new students are taking the correct classes which can save students time and money!


    Icon-IDcard6. Student ID Card

     


    After registering for classes, students with a copy of the class schedule are eligible to obtain a free SCC photo identification card. Free photo IDs are available for each student for use on campus in the Library Resource Center, Business Office, Bookstore, entry to College activities, etc. Photos for ID cards are taken in the Library Resource Center at the Beatrice Campus, at the Information Desk at the Lincoln Campus or in the Assessment Office on the Milford Campus.


    Icon-Books7. Textbook Purchase

    Icon-Paytuition8. Pay Your Tuition

     


    Full payment of tuition and fees is due no later than the beginning of the term. If students register for classes after the first day of the term, payment is due immediately for class registrations. Non-payment of tuition and fees may affect future enrollment status. SCC accepts VISA, MasterCard and Discover credit cards for payment. SCC also offers students the FACTS eCashier Monthly Payment Plan. “FACTS” eCashier provides an option for budgeting tuition and other educational expenses.
