It’s not too late to register for spring classes at Spartanburg Community College (SCC), one of the fastest-growing colleges in the nation, according to Community College Week. With SCC’s FlexStart terms starting on February 14, March 2 and 21, beginning or continuing a college education is convenient for students of all ages.
SCC’s FlexStart offerings include 10, 7.5 and 5-week terms that begin later in the semester but cover all of the course materials required in fewer weeks than traditional classes. “These courses are ideal for students who prefer to work harder and faster to complete coursework in a shorter timeframe, so they have more time for work, family, and other responsibilities and activities. FlexStart offers students the flexibility to manage going to school with other priorities,” said Celia Bauss, SCC registrar. “It’s also great for college students seeking to gain additional credits or juggling work and school.”
SCC offers FlexStart courses in the following areas of study:
- Administrative Office Technology
- American Sign Language
- Art History
- Introduction to Computers
- Introduction to Early Childhood
FlexStart courses are available during the day, evening, weekend and online. Individuals interested in applying to the College to take FlexStart classes can apply in person at any SCC campus or online at www.sccsc.edu. Registration for FlexStart terms is going on now. Not all FlexStart classes are available at each SCC location. Visit the SCC website for a complete listing of offerings and locations.
SCC began offering the FlexStart classes in 2006 in an effort to provide students with another option to make a college education accessible and achievable. The program has been very successful and classes fill quickly.
SCC provides convenient, affordable and transferable educational opportunities to Upstate residents and people across the nation through online course options. SCCOnline offers more than 100 online courses as well as complete online associate degree and certificate programs of study.
