The process of applying for, getting into, and attending college has changed dramatically in the last 15 to 20 years. On top of all the tests and extracurricular activities expected of your son or daughter, the price tag of a college degree has gone up sharply — more than 200% in some studies.

For many parents, paying for a 4-year degree from a national public or private institution can be expensive, stressful and downright overwhelming. And that’s true even if you, as a parent, are college educated or tried to plan ahead by saving tuition money for your student.

Community college is the smart alternative. Your student can earn a 2- or 4-year degree affordably while also getting hands on learning experience and one-on-one attention they likely wouldn’t get in a large university setting.

Even though SC4 is a less expensive choice, we understand it is still a big expense for families. That’s why our Financial Aid office is here to help with anything you may need. There are also several scholarship opportunities available for students.

At SC4, your son or daughter will learn from experienced instructors in a small class setting.

A number of our degree programs are regarded as the best of their kind in the region. SC4 Nursing students, for instance, have a first time pass rate of 98% on their national boards, while the state and national average is in the mid-80s.

Your son or daughter can also have the full college experience at SC4. From catching a game at the new, state-of-the art SC4 Fieldhouse to joining a student organization, SC4 provides your student with limitless of opportunities to connect with their college community while working towards their degree or career goals.

And when it comes to jobs, SC4 alumni are successful. Many graduates go on to careers in healthcare, engineering, education and information technology with companies such as General Motors, McLaren Port Huron, Chrysler, Lake Huron Medical Center, Quicken Loans and the State of Michigan.
