At the beginning of each semester, students' printing accounts are automatically loaded with $40 for printing on campus. (We call it "Printing Power"!) If you deplete your complimentary printing , you can purchase more Printing Power at the Printing Kiosk in the West Burlington and Keokuk libraries or Mount Pleasant computer lab.
The Help Desk is available to assist current SCC students with a single point of contact for all technical problems and requests concerning college computers, SCC email accounts, network resources, and information systems (Student portal and Hawknet). Help Desk Information

Clubs & Organizations
Take an active role in your college experience. It's easy to find people exactly like you - just look around. With over two dozen student clubs and organizations, there's something for everyone.
The SCC Blackhawks compete in several collegiate sports.
We also compete in two co-ed club sports: sport shooting and cheer/dance.
Your last stop before attending class is the Blackhawk Bookstore. It is important you take your semester schedule with you. You need the class information (department, course and section numbers) listed on the schedule to select the correct textbooks.
It's important to start early! The best selection of used and rented books is available when semester sales begin. The closer to the start of the term, the less selection and the longer the wait to checkout! Books for online classes sometimes have to be ordered. In other words - don't procrastinate!
If you are receiving financial aid, you will want to have your aid certified/finalized before you make your visit to the bookstore. The best option to know if you have available financial aid for books is to check your Self Service Account in Hawknet.
