1.       Late-Start Fall Courses:  A list of SCC’s “late-start” classes.  If you have high school students who would still like to take a college class this Fall, there’s still time to register!  10-week courses begin on October 1 and 7-week courses begin on October 22.  All currently enrolled high school students are eligible for the reduced tuition rate of $50/credit (no fees).  Please have any students interested in taking a class contact me for assistance.

2.       Nursing Information Sessions:  Please let any of your Seniors who want to apply to SCC’s Nursing program next year know they must attend a Nursing Information Session.  During the session they will learn information on admissions procedures, the Nursing entrance test, costs of the program and more.  All sessions take place at 3:30pm so that high school students can also attend.  Please have interested students register to attend at www.salemcc.edu/nursing-center/nursing-information-sessions.
