Fall registration begins this week, new tuition structure
We’re excited about the fall semester and we hope you’ll share details with all of your friends and family. Fall registration opens for priority registration (those who have 30-hours or more and declared degree) today, June 1. It opens to everyone else tomorrow, June 2.
The fall semester begins Monday, August 23. Among the many fall program offerings, SFCC is again offering students the opportunity to apply for the Engineering Machining Technologies certificate program. Additionally, classes for automotive technologies will now be offered in the new Automotive Technologies Center on campus.
SFCC is offering a new tuition structure beginning Fall 2021 that will allow students who wish to take 12 to 18 credit hours to pay for only 12 credit hours. Students will be charged tuition per credit hour up to 12 credit hours. After 12 credit hours, there will be no additional tuition charge up to and including 18 credit hours. Additional credit hours beyond 18 will be charged at the regular credit hour rate.
SFCC President Becky Rowley, Ph.D. said, “As our community begins to recover from the economic impacts from COVID-19, the college recognizes its vital role in providing job training and access to affordable college programs. SFCC’s financial advisors are prepared to help assist students who have concerns about how they will pay for college. Our academic advisors will collaborate with students to determine the most efficient path to reaching their goals.
“Based on the current declining COVID-19 cases, as well as vaccination rates, the college will offer a broader selection of in-person classes this fall. We’ve got a healthy mix of classes that will be offered in-person on campus. We’ve also found that some students really like the flexibility of online classes, so we will continue to offer online options,” President Rowley added.
The college has developed a guide to registering detailed at https://www.sfcc.edu/look-for-a-credit-class/.
