It's Essential for Your Success!
At Spartanburg Community College, we don't just value the success of our students. We also care deeply about ensuring your personal health and wellness and that help is always available for anyone who needs it.
When it comes to creating a comfortable and enjoyable space during your time as a Chaser, SCC has two teams to help make that happen: Student Success and Student Engagement.
We're here to build you up both academically and socially! For your well-being, we value the connections students can make both inside and out of the classroom. If you need financial assistance with books, child-care, educational supplies or city transportation, contact our AIM Center.
When it comes to your education, we're happy to offer you a wide array of resources to help ensure you a brighter academic future.
While higher education is beneficial, it can also sometimes be stressful or difficult to navigate. If you are unhappy with your GPA, are having trouble maintaining consistent attendance, or are struggling overall with school, our Success Coaches are here to help you overcome those struggles and get you where you want to be. With their help, you will be able to not only identify the areas where you struggle but also develop goals and solutions to start you on your way towards success.
Get connected with your success coach today at (864) 592-4622!
Your Academic Advisor is here to help train and build up both new and established Chasers in ways that work best for them. The path from college to the working world can be a confusing one, but through working with your academic advisor and downloading the AVISO app, we can help you make the best choices according to your goals to point you in the direction of success. For more information, reach out to your faculty advisor.
No matter the type of student, SCC offers a wealth of helpful services to assist you with your education as well as your career goals. Regardless of your needs, we're here to help as best we can!
If it's one-on-one or group tutoring that you're after, reach out to our Rita Allison Learning Center (TLC). The TLC offers professional assistance at our open computer lab, online help and writing reviews through the "Ask-A-Tutor" system, and even guidance with computer and software use. With tutoring services offered at all SCC locations, help is here whenever you need it!

While your academic journey is very important to us, we take your health, both physical and mental, very seriously. If you ever need someone to talk to or are concerned about food insecurity, SCC is always here to support you as best we can. We don't just chase success, but a healthy lifestyle as well.
At some point, everyone needs a supportive person to talk to. At SCC, we care about your health and wellness because no one should have to manage their mental health alone, and at SCC you never have to. If you're struggling with your mental health and aren't sure who to call or speak with, visit our Counseling and Student Assistance Program Services page.
At SCC, we want to ensure that our students are happy and never hungry. Unfortunately, food insecurity isn't uncommon, but we want to make sure that none of our Chasers ever have to go hungry. No matter your resources or needs, everything from canned goods to personal care items to household necessities are available for you Monday-Thursday 9am- 3pm. For more information, please visit our Chaser's Pantry page.
It can be tough juggling school, homework, and a full-time job while still leaving time for yourself as a student. Beyond the necessities of Student Success, Student Engagement and Student Life are here to put the Fun in Fundamentals. If you're interested in campus activities outside of the classroom or lending a helping hand with community service, then visit our Student Life page for more information.
Making new friends in college can be hard, but luckily SCC offers so many fun events to share with new and old friends. From our Faculty and Staff vs. Students basketball game to our Late-Night Breakfast during exams, there's always something fun to do and people to meet when you're a Chaser! More recently, our students have really enjoyed our Fishing club and an eSports club, Gospel choir, and Athletics program are all currently in development!
