In this section, you'll learn about student resources such as services, activities, and other things you might need as a student.

Services and Activities

The Yohe Memorial Library at the West Burlington campus and the Fred Karre Memorial Library at the Keokuk campus contain a combined collection of over 30,000 volumes, plus non-book media. This collection may be accessed at either library through the automated catalog or by visiting the Library information page.

Accessibility Services

The Accessibility Services Office is the primary place on campus with specialized knowledge and experience in disability issues. The Student Support Center serves students with physical, psychological, medical, and learning disabilities. If you have a disability and are given accommodations in your other high school classes, you will not automatically be given these same accommodations in your college class(es), whether at the high school, online, or on an SCC campus. If you currently have a disability, please contact Angie Mickelson, Student Success Advocate, at amickelson@scciowa.edu or by phone at (319) 208-5167.

Student Success Advocate

Your Student Success Advocate helps guides you to success. They offer academic coaching, testing strategies, assistance with technology, information for community resources and many other tools to help you reach your education goals. Learn more about Student Success Advocates.

Academic Achievement Center

The Academic Achievement Center (AAC), room 311 in Keokuk and room 206 in West Burlington provides assistance to help you through your classes.

Tutoring Services

Return the completed form along with a copy of your current class schedule to the AAC. We encourage everyone to take advantage of this valuable and effective resource. Peer Tutoring Request Form

For those who wish help by a non-peer, additional tutoring is available through the Academic Achievement Center. Walk-in are welcome as well as by appointment. Please see the Academic Achievement Center page for details.

Track Track

We also compete in two co-ed club sports: sport shooting and cheer/dance.

Blackhawk Bookstore

Your last stop before attending class is to get your books. Please talk to your school counselor about this. If your counselor tells you to go to the Blackhawk Bookstore, It is critical that 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!

Right to Know

Federal regulations require us to provide you, our student, with specific consumer information. In order to share this with you in the most accessible manner. Please see our Consumer Information which is required by law for SCC to make available to the public regarding the topics below:
