Spark Facility Usage / Outside Groups
Spark Center facilities may be used by certain agencies, groups, organizations, or individuals when the scheduled activity is in the community’s interest and does not create a monetary profit for the sponsoring organization. The use of College facilities by or for any of the following is strictly prohibited: 1) any form of illegal activity; 2) private teaching involving personal payments to the presenting organization or individual; 3) religious meetings not directly sponsored by a campus organization; 4) organizations that believe in or teach directly or indirectly the overthrow of the Federal Government or the Government of the State of South Carolina.
The SCC Foundation encourages donations from area community constituents to support SCC in effort to achieve their vision and mission. In exchange for these donations, facility rental rates may be reduced or waived based on the level of donation. More information on the SCC Foundation can be found at its website at www.sccsc.edu/foundation.
The rental rates for Spark Center or TRC classrooms/meeting rooms and additional fees such as special set-ups, media, after-hours security and janitorial services are listed below. Please feel free to contact Erin Easler at 864-592-6524 or Sparkinfo@sccsc.edu if you have any questions regarding SCC's facility usage policies and procedures or would like information on facility rental and service fee rates for any of SCC’s other campuses.
