Maximum Credit Procedure
St. Clair County Community College is accredited by The Higher Learning Commission. With this foundation of excellence in place, it is our intent to prepare students for employment, enhance job skills, or prepare them to transfer to another institution of higher learning to complete a bachelor, master, or doctoral degree of their choosing.
Noting that most of our associate degrees require at least 60 credits to graduate and knowing that some of our community college students wish to pursue more than one degree or return for additional coursework to enhance job skills training or pursue another career, the college has implemented a policy where no students may take more than 300 college credits in a lifetime at our institution. A student who wishes to take more than 300 college credits must contact the Manager of Residential Life and Student Conduct at email@example.com to appeal and provide written documentation as to why taking more than 300 college credits is warranted.
