There is no time like the present when it comes to gaining knowledge and chasing your lifelong dreams. Whether you’re a high schooler preparing for your next steps, a college student looking for the perfect institution for them, or an adult that feels they missed their opportunity for education, Southeast Community College (SCC, southeast.edu) has the tools you need to succeed.
SCC has more than 60 programs of study to choose from, and class sizes allow for more personal attention and a comfortable learning environment. If you’re unsure where to start, the advisors at SCC are there for you from the moment you are admitted until your graduation day and beyond. Advising services are there to support you in and out of the classroom, and your advisors will work with you to create an educational plan that fits with your academic, career, and personal goals.
SCC is committed to its mission of transforming students and the diverse communities it serves through accessible, dynamic and responsive pathways to career and technical, academic transfer, and continuing education programs, as well as lifelong learning opportunities.
Southeast Community College is proud to offer dual-credit opportunities to high school juniors and seniors to get a jump start on their post-secondary degree and explore career opportunities while still in high school. Through either the DC Advantage or the Southeast Nebraska Career Academy Partnership, students can earn both high school and college credit. By completing dual-credit courses through either program, students will begin to acquire college credit hours to apply toward a program of study at SCC or a four-year institution by transferring dual-credit hours earned after graduating high school.
Dual-credit courses are offered in 16-week increments and delivered in a variety of formats: Online, Distance Learning, or face-to-face with a certified dual-credit Southeast Community College instructor. Some courses require a prerequisite or appropriate placement score on the ACT, COMPASS, or Next Generation Accuplacer.
Classes begin in August and January of every year. To register for dual-credit, you must go through the dual-credit office by contacting your high school counselor.
Adult Education provides instruction to students who are 16 years or older and have either officially withdrawn from a Nebraska school or have completed home-schooling. SCC’s GED® preparation provides adults who are not currently enrolled in secondary schools an opportunity to prepare for the GED® Tests and earn a Nebraska high school diploma. Students who take the GED® exam are tested in Reasoning through Language Arts, Social Studies, Science, and Mathematical Reasoning. Tests are administrated by an approved testing site. The GED® Prep classes are offered in Lincoln and seven locations in surrounding southeast Nebraska.
SCC understands taking in-person classes isn’t convenient for everyone. The Online Learning division makes it possible for you to take classes online to fit into your busy schedule. Your online experience will have you interacting with your classmates and instructors in a state-of-the-art virtual classroom.
Online courses use the same curriculum and meet the same standards as in-person classes at SCC’s three campuses. They offer more than 300 online courses per term according to the SCC academic calendar. Flexibility is key as some programs can be completed entirely online or with a hybrid blend of face-to-face and online courses.
