Concurrent Enrollment at SCC

Students can take courses at more than one school in order to satisfy their educational objective. This process is called Concurrent Enrollment. During this process, the school that will issue the student's degree is called the “parent" school. The additional school is referred to as the “guest" school where the student would be considered a “guest" student.
