SCHEDULE OF CLASSES
SC4 offers classes in a variety of formats including day, evening, weekend, online, accelerated, short-term and other formats. Students are encouraged to register early in order to take full advantage of these opportunities.
Online: Students may register for classes online via the WAVE at www.sc4.edu/wave.
Walk-in: Students may register in person at the Enrollment Services office or at one of the off-campus centers.
Registration times vary. Refer to the registration calendar at www.sc4.edu/registrationcalendar for specific registration dates/times.
It is the responsibility of the student to follow the established procedure for adding, dropping or withdrawing from classes. It is the student’s responsibility to confirm the accuracy of both registration and billing information at the time of enrollment. Award amounts listed for students receiving financial aid and/or scholarships are “pending” and may be adjusted following registration. Students are responsible for payment of tuition and fees not covered by financial aid and must drop classes within the established refund period. In the event that a student declines a financial aid award, or does not register for the minimum number of required credit hours, the student is responsible to drop the class(es) prior to the final drop/add deadline date.
Students who choose to “audit” a class must designate this registration status at the time of registration or by the end of the drop/add period. Once a class has been registered as an “audit,” no adjustments may be made to change the course status to college credit after the drop/add period has ended. Conversely, once a class has been registered for college credit, a student may not change the status of the class to “audit” after the drop/add period has ended. Students failing to comply with this requirement will be held responsible for the resulting consequences. Ultimately, it is the student’s responsibility to verify the accuracy of the registration and billing statement at the time of registration.
RESIDENT AND NON-RESIDENT POLICY
SC4 students are responsible for maintaining an accurate address at the college for the purpose of billing tuition appropriately as well as mailing refunds or other pertinent information. Because residency corresponds to a student’s address and consequently determines tuition rates, a student wishing to be classified as an SC4 in-district resident must meet the following requirements:
Note: International students cannot establish residency.
Residency of all students under 18 years of age follows that of their parents or legal guardians. Students who falsify their residency will be subject to payment of tuition at the correct residency rate. Charges in such cases will be retroactive.
Students who have moved from out-district to in-district must complete the following steps, prior to the start of classes, to be charged at the in-district rate:
Appeals may be made to the Registrar. The proof of residency outlined above must include the student’s name, current address and be dated a minimum of 30 calendar days prior to the start of semester.
Please note that all changes in residency status should be reported immediately to the Enrollment Services office, Room 123, Acheson Technology Center.
NAME AND ADDRESS CHANGES
If the address is being changed from an out-district address to an in-district address, residency change procedures must be followed as outlined in the aforementioned section. Failure to submit the necessary forms pertaining to a given semester may result in the Enrollment Services office being unable to provide requested services. As a result, students will be held responsible for the consequences of such action.
Students who withdraw from a class may no longer attend the class and no tuition refund will be processed. Failure to formally withdraw from a class(es) may result in a grade of “E.” Ill or injured students unable to withdraw online or in person should have a family member or friend initiate the process by contacting Enrollment Services.
All students requesting a complete withdrawal of classes prior to the 60% date of the semester are encouraged to visit the Financial Aid office to determine the impact that the Federal Return of Title IV Funds rule may have on their current and future financial aid.
When work has been affected by unexcused absences or tardiness, penalties may be imposed at the discretion of the individual instructor. As a matter of courtesy, students should explain the reason for absence to their instructors. When possible, this should be done in advance.
If a student stops attending class and does not officially withdraw from the class, or does not make arrangements with the instructor for an “I” incomplete grade (restrictions apply), the instructor has no choice but to issue a final grade of “E” for the class. Students are cautioned to remember that failing grades may affect current and future financial aid.
Transcript requests may be submitted online via the WAVE or forms may be completed by students in the Enrollment Services office. In addition, forms may be printed from the SC4 website and faxed to (810) 989-5541. The transcript request form includes full name, birth date, social security number or student number, approximate dates of attendance, other last name(s) if different from the name that the student record may be filed under, number of official or unofficial copies to be sent, name and address of where the transcript(s) is to be sent and the student’s signature.
Note: Normally, transcripts sent to students directly are unofficial copies unless the student has specifically indicated in writing on the transcript request form that they wish to receive an official transcript.
Students who owe tuition dollars to SC4 or who have other obligations will be prevented from receiving transcripts (official/unofficial) and degrees/certificates until all financial issues are resolved with the SC4 Business Office.
STUDENT EMAIL ACCOUNTS
All students must activate their email accounts. Instructions are provided at www.sc4.edu/emailhelp. SC4 uses email to communicate with all students taking classes for credit, regarding important information about billing, classes, deadlines, events, refunds, financial aid and registration.
To use email, students may go to www.sc4.edu. Click on “Current Students” followed by the “SC4 email” button. Accounts will be inactivated after students have not enrolled in credit classes for a period of 24 months.
