Student Responsibilities

  1. Submit all admissions, financial aid, and academic documentation. Your advisor needs to review this material to help you make the best degree and course choices.
  2. Make SCC aware of any changes in your personal information. Personal Information Change forms are available through your advising portal in Canvas and at the front desk in the Admissions Office.
  3. Use the information and guidance provided by the advisor to make wise decisions about your major and which courses to take.
  4. Refer to your Program Sheet when selecting courses for the next semester. Mark your sheet to help you keep track of your progress toward your degree. It is helpful to keep your Program Sheet, along with other advising-related materials, organized in a folder that you bring with you to every advising appointment.
  5. Once you are on your way to completing courses specific to your major, ask yourself two important questions to make sure it is the right fit for you: (a) Do I find the content of the core courses interesting? and (b) Do my courses make me look forward to future coursework in this major?
  6. Make your education a priority and attend all classes. If a class absence cannot be avoided, you should contact the instructor immediately.
  7. Access and read the College Catalog and Student Handbook. Be familiar with and abide by SCC policies defined in the College Catalog and Student Handbook.
  8. Schedule periodic meetings with your advisor to discuss your progress and ask any questions you may have.
