Take advantage of all that a community college has to offer by doing your first 2 years of college here and transferring to a 4-year college later. By completing the first two years of a four-year degree at South Central College, you will experience the many benefits of a community college, including:

  • Expert instruction
  • Individualized attention
  • Small class sizes
  • Lower tuition rates
