Work toward a high-demand career opportunity or general education to then transfer to a four-year university. In some cases, students only need to take one or two classes to achieve a certificate of completion.
Imagina the Possibilities
Take advantage of high-quality instruction the way you want it. Courses are delivered in 8- and 16-week schedule options, and in Live Online, On Your Own Time Online, Hybrid and In-Person formats.
Our class sizes are small (16 average, 2018-2019) so you can get the individual attention you deserve. Students can expect the same high-quality curriculum and educational opportunities on par with other accredited academic institutions. Almost 70% of SCC faculty members have a master’s degree and 26% have a doctoral degree.
Because many classes are being held online these days, SCC offers a special Online Learning Center which provides extensive free tools and information for anyone new to online learning or who wish to enhance their online education experience.
Imagina Affordable Tuition
SCC has one of the lowest tuition rates across Arizona, at only $85 per credit hour. This translates to an average cost of about $2,500 annually for a full-time student. Four-year state universities are roughly four times higher, and attending a private institution can be substantially more.
Community colleges are accredited by and have the same academic standards as four-year universities, so you can be confident you are receiving the same high-quality education. That is why so many four-year universities, like ASU, UA and NAU, readily accept transfer credits from community colleges.
Many SCC classes offer open educational resources so that students are not required to purchase expensive textbooks.
While financial aid and scholarships are available, cost remains a big concern. Simply put, the lower the tuition, the lower the amount student debt that may be required.
