SCCC can help you get a quality education without putting you in debt. A full-time student at SCCC will pay about $5000 per year. Earning your first two years of credit at SCCC can cost less than just one year at a public or private institution. That leaves you more money for your next step. Plus, more than 48% of students receive financial aid assistance including grants, loans and/or scholarships.

The cost of tuition for auditing a class is the same as registering for credit.
Sussex County residents over 65 years old may audit a course tuition free (fees must be paid), pending available space.
Sussex County Community College will provide a chargeback authorization, in accordance with the policy, at a New Jersey community college for students interested in pursuing a program not available at SCCC or any of its contracting institutions.
Senior Citizen Policy – Tuition Waiver Requirements
Sussex County residents 65 years and older are entitled to free tuition for eligible college level courses offered by SCCC. The one time application fee ($25) is required. All college fees are paid by the applicant.
Free tuition for senior citizens is offered with the following conditions: a) the class must be eligible for the senior citizen free tuition (some limited enrollment courses such as labs or field experience courses will not be eligible); b) paid enrollment warrants the course being conducted; c) sufficient space is available in the class; and d) registration for the course must occur only during the final two business days before the start of the semester. Applicants who opt to register earlier are not eligible for free tuition. Applicants may take the course for college credit or may choose to audit the course.
Applicants must register in person during the specified registration time period (the final two days before the start of the register), and must present proof of eligibility at the time of registration. Applicants may seek advising assistance from the Counseling and Advising Center, but must register at Office of the Registrar.
Sussex County Community College offers two methods for high-school students to receive college credit while still enrolled in high-school.
