We’re here to help you successfully navigate your college career. We’re available anytime for questions, but we strongly encourage all dual-enrolled students to do the following:
- Check your SC4 email regularly and check voicemails.
- Pay attention to deadlines. Our semester start and end dates do not always line up with your high school. Spring break and other days off may be different. Know our dates by checking the Academic Calendar on sc4.edu.
- Log in to your class. Failure to log in to your class will result in notification to your counselor and could result in missed course work. Know the start date and set a reminder!
- Follow your course syllabus. Know who to contact if you have questions.
- Maintain satisfactory academic status of 2.0 or higher. Most courses only transfer if the grade earned is ‘C’ or better.
