Start smart at SC4.

Attending SC4 is a smart decision. It’s one that will help you go anywhere. You’ll benefit from affordable tuition, flexibility, a high-quality education, a vibrant campus community, and faculty and staff dedicated to maximizing your success.

Next Steps

This step is optional, but you may be surprised at what you qualify for! Complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and find out. You’ll need SC4’s Federal School Code, which is 002310.

Learn more about the Financial Aid process or make an appointment with a Financial Aid officer. You also can email financialaid@sc4.edu.

If you have financial aid on your account, it will automatically be applied to your tuition when you register.

After you register, you can see your balance, make a payment or set up a payment plan by clicking on the Student Finance tab in your Service Center in the Portal.

Please be aware of tuition costs and payment due dates.

Please note that high school guests, college guests, students attending for personal enrichment, and students without a high school diploma or GED are not eligible for financial aid.

Degrees

SC4 offers many occupational degrees to help students gain the skills needed for employment as well as transfer-based degrees to help students on their way in their academic journey.

If you are planning to transfer to a four-year school in Michigan, we usually recommend starting with the Michigan Transfer Agreement (MTA). Completing MTA will waive general education requirements at most four-year schools in Michigan.

If you are interested in earning an associate degree before you transfer, MTA gets you halfway to our transfer degrees in arts, business and science. Classes may transfer beyond MTA but that varies by transfer school and major.

Most four-year schools have transfer guides that list classes you can take beyond MTA. Find resources and look up course equivalencies at mitransfer.org.

We encourage you to make an appointment with an advisor to talk about class selection, especially if you plan to transfer.

Placement into your first English and math class

New students are required to take assessments for math and writing skills (or submit scores from previous assessment tests) in order to register for English (ENG), mathematics (MTH), or some science courses where a specific level of writing or math proficiency is required. These assessments ensure that you’re placed in the right courses. This also applies to transfer students without college-level English and/or math classes on a college transcript.

SC4 accepts scores from the following assessment tests:  SAT, ACT, and ACCUPLACER. Consider taking ACCUPLACER assessments at the SC4 Testing Center if you took the ACT / SAT exam in high school. Call (810) 989-5555 to schedule your assessment tests. If you have your SC4 student number, you can also schedule your testing appointment online.

Avoid registration delays for future semesters by getting testing requirements completed soon!

AP credit

If you took an AP class in high school and passed the AP exam for that class with a score of “3” or better, you may be eligible for college credit. We encourage you to look at what SC4 credit your AP class may be applied to. Keep in mind that some four-year schools may require a higher score on the AP exam to obtain credit at that institution.

If you didn’t request to have the scores sent to SC4 when you took the test, you will need to request that through your College Board account.

An advising appointment is not currently required for new students, but you are encouraged to make an appointment to discuss class selection, degree requirements and transfer planning. To schedule an appointment please visit the Advising page.
