Affordability
Whether you are a full-time student or taking classes part-time, our affordable tuition makes it easier for you to achieve your goals. Simply stated, you receive the same high quality of education provided at larger schools but at less cost. You may even qualify for scholarships, grants, loans, and work-study jobs. Many students work full-time and still attend college.

Small College - Big Results!
At SCCC/ATS, you'll never get lost in the crowd. With a low student-teacher ratio, you will get the individual attention you need from experienced faculty. With a staff, who really care, and the relaxed, friendly atmosphere of a small campus, student success is a high priority! Our Learning Resource Center is both high-tech and student friendly; the Academic Achievement Center can arrange for free tutoring, college success seminars, and guided computer use. Math, reading, and writing classes are available to help you brush up on your skills.

Part of a Great Place!
Located in Southwest Kansas, where traditional values remain important; Liberal is small enough for convenience, yet large enough to offer shopping, restaurants, entertainment, museums, recreation and parks. Liberal is only hours away from several metropolitan areas including Wichita, Oklahoma City, Amarillo, and Denver. A safe and secure campus environment allows students a "down-home" friendly atmosphere where life-long memories and friendships are established.

Student Activities & Organizations!
There's plenty of fun at SCCC/ATS, too! Get involved with other students through campus activities, work and play, and by serving the community through volunteer work. The key to a well-rounded college experience is to participate in student organizations which share your interests. As a Seward County Saint, you can expect more than just going to class - clubs represent various occupational interests from marketing to science. The Student Government Association and Student Life Club sponsor a multitude of activities from noontime entertainment, intramural activities, leadership seminars, festivals and networking experiences. The Student Union is a great place to unwind with a TV Lounge, conversation area, Internet Café, Cafeteria, game tables, swimming pool, Wellness Center, and Bookstore.
