Advising

Changes to the advising process during the COVID-19 situation

The SC4 campus is closed to students and the general public through April 12, 2020. At this time we are not taking face to face appointments, but phone and online appointments are available.

Some of the information on this page will not apply to you during this period.

Details on SC4’s response to the coronavirus (COVID-19) situation are available at sc4.edu/coronavirus.


SC4 advisors are here to assist you as you pursue your academic goals. They are informed, compassionate and dedicated to your success.

New and transfer students

Whether you are brand new to college or transferring in from another school, you are required to meet with an advisor for a one-hour appointment. During this appointment, you will plan classes for the first semester and learn about degree requirements. (The advising requirement is waived if you have a college degree or are taking classes for personal enrichment).

Current students

If you are a current SC4 student, you can discuss class schedules and make sure you are on track to earn your degree. These appointments last 30 minutes.

Transferring after SC4

Advisors are available to assist with the transfer process and help make your transfer as smooth as possible. Transfer planning appointments last one hour.

Former SC4 students

Are you returning to SC4 after a break? Advisors can help you get back on track toward a degree with a one-hour appointment.
