Scottsdale Community College making new student enrollment and registration as quick as possible with its annual Enrollment Days event for the Fall 2019 semester.

The event will run from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. from June 10-12 and July 8-10 at SCC, 9000 E. Chaparral Road.

“The Enrollment Days event is designed to meet the needs of prospective students, while helping them start their academic journey and achieve their educational goals,” Gia Taylor, SCC’s dean of student services, said in a prepared statement.

“New students can complete the enrollment process in as little as one day at this event.”

Just like any other college, there’s a few steps to take to enroll, so SCC is making its full staff available to focus on assisting students through the enrollment and registration process during the event, according to a press release.

First, students will apply for admission. Students will need to bring photo ID (like a state ID, Driver’s License, Permanent Resident Card or Passport); a Social Security Number (alternate arrangements are made for non-residents); and high school transcript for students who graduated within the last 10 years or ACT/GED test scores.

Using a high school transcript or placement test scores, the college will then determine placement in the correct course level.

Next, students will meet with an academic advisor about their goals and career focus and attend the Scottsdale Orientation, Advising and Registration program (SOAR), a release states.

During SOAR, students will register for classes and explore payment options like government FAFSA Assistance, scholarships or payment plans. Students who need financial aid should bring their 2017 tax returns for their parents.

Because Enrollment Days are popular, the college asks prospective students reserve their spot in advance via SCC’s website.

From student research opportunities to service-learning projects and internships, SCC students graduate with real-world experience that helps launch their careers and serves as the foundation for continued learning.

The college offers student support services at no additional cost and its campus location provides students with a unique experience.

With an average class size of 16, students can have a closer connection with faculty that gives them the confidence to take their education to the next level.
