Students are the heart of Seward County Community College. We view each person as a unique individual, with potential and dreams to achieve — and equally valuable at every point in the process. With a student body as diverse as our community, SCCC brings people from the region's small towns into contact with international students, and nontraditional learners of all ages together with recent high school graduates. The common factor is that we are all moving forward into growth, new challenges, and professional success.
We offer 45 programs of study, including Adult Basic Education, certificate programs and associate of arts, science, general studies and applied sciences degrees. However, our learning options aren't limited to traditional classroom settings. As a community college, we endeavor to provide learning opportunities for people at all stages of life, through area Outreach classes, professional development and continued education, enrichment and recreational classes, and business and industry support. Explore the many paths to a more vibrant life through education.
Seward County Community College faculty bring more to the students than classroom instruction. Through our instructors, many of whom hold doctorate-level credentials, students gain access to rich and varied life and professional experiences. Learn journalism from a former international bureau chief who covered every major disaster on four continents over 20 years. Get Commercial Drivers License instruction from a man who started out delivering milk and eggs from rural Pennsylvania to New York City. Participate in university-level lab work with science and Allied Health researchers. Put all those resources together, and students can gain the skills they need to succeed in their chosen fields.
