Step 1: Course Placement
Sussex County Community College is committed to providing students with the skills necessary for success in college work. The College requires that first-time degree-seeking students (students who plan to get their complete Associate’s degree or certificate from SCCC) demonstrate appropriate level of skills in reading, writing, and mathematics prior to registering for their courses Skill level may be demonstrated through:
• SAT scores;
• ACT scores; or
• Accuplacer Testing
If you have not taken the SAT or ACT, or do not want to use your scores for course placement, you can register for the Accuplacer by clicking here.
If you are transferring to SCCC from another institution, you may be exempt from the above course placement criteria. You may be exempt if:
• You are able to provide transcript(s) from your previous college(s) that include grades of “C” or higher in a college-level mathematics and/or English composition courses; or
• You have previously received an Associate’s degree or Higher from an accredited college.
You can submit your transcripts through the Registrar’s Office by faxing them to 973-579-5226, or by emailing them firstname.lastname@example.org.
Step 2: Apply for Financial Aid (optional)
Many students are not aware that the federal government provides almost $150 billion dollars each year to assist students in paying to continue their education.
Here are some things you should be aware of:
• There is no income cut-off for federal student aid. Your eligibility for financial aid is based on a number of factors and not just your income;
• The FAFSA has come a long way, and is easier than ever to complete online. The form uses “skip logic,” so you are only asked the questions that are relevant to you; and
• Eligibility for most federal student aid programs is not linked to your academic performance.
You can visit the Federal Student Aid website and submit your FAFSA by clicking here.
Step 3: Course Registration
