Students registering for a continuing education class will complete a continuing education registration form, pay registration fee, and sign receipt roster. (Procedure 3.1.9) Adults 18 years of age or older and not enrolled in a secondary school may be admitted to continuing education classes.
The State Board of Community Colleges Code requires that students, 16 and 17 years old, obtain written approval from school administration to take occupational extension and personal development (community service) classes. Students, who are enrolled in a secondary school, must submit at the beginning of each class a completed Permission Form for Minor Applicants Enrolling in Continuing Education Classes signed by the principal and superintendent or appropriate administrative personnel, as well as parent/legal guardian. These forms may be obtained from secondary school personnel or from the Continuing Education/Workforce & Community Development office. (Note: Currently, SCC has a blanket approval for students enrolled in the Columbus County and Whiteville City school systems to take occupational and personal development (community service) classes; therefore, individual permission forms are not required for these students.) Minors, 16 and 17 year olds, enrolling in Basic Skills classes must officially withdraw from public school and obtain a Minor Applicant form from appropriate public school personnel, and attend a required pre-enrollment meeting with the High School Equivalency Diploma Examiner. Both student and parent/legal guardian must be in attendance. To schedule an appointment, call (910) 788-6432.
