Why SCC?

We're on to something! Whether you're looking to get a start on your B.A. degree or preparing for a great career, SCC will get you there.



Close to home

Chance are if you're reading this, you're less than 30 minutes from one of our campuses or learning centers. Why is this important? Easy - convenience. If you're like many of our students, moving away for a few years or driving a few hours every day to go to college just isn't in the cards. Being close to home is important to you. That's one of the things we do best.


Our grads have a lot of great things to say about us. One thing we hear a lot is how SCC programs prepared they are for their life after SCC. Whether you're learning what it takes to start a great career right here in the area or if you're studying to transfer to another college, SCC will prepare you.


SCC is an excellent place to get a solid, quality college education. We have one of the lowest tuition rates in Iowa. Compared to other colleges and universities, you'll see how affordable a quality education can be.
