Here to take classes, but do not want to complete a full certificate or degree? As a student who is not seeking a degree, you're considered a Visiting Student. We're glad you're here!
Visiting Student Overview
Persons interested in registering for select courses and who are not interested in pursuing a diploma or degree are considered Visiting Students.
Visiting Students are not required to apply for admission to SCTCC.
Credits earned as a Visiting Student may later, upon admission to a degree program, be applied toward graduation. Visiting Students who have completed 16 credits are strongly urged to apply for admission to the college. Technical credits completed as a Visiting Student beyond the initial 16 may not be applied toward a diploma or degree.
Commonly used phrase for Visiting Students: Non-Degree Seeking.
