Please contact your Advisor to schedule an appointment for advisement/registration. You may obtain your advisor’s contact information in Watermark Student Success.

Currently enrolled students register each semester for the upcoming semester during the Priority Registration period. Students receive alerts in Watermark Student Success with specific instructions regarding registration, including their priority date and time, along with their advisor’s name and contact information. Early registration for the Fall semester occurs in March and early registration for the Spring occurs in November. Check the Academic Calendar for specific registration dates.

Students can register online through Self-Service after meeting with their Advisor to make certain they have the classes they need to graduate. Video tutorials on how to navigate Self-Service can be found on Rams Online.

New Students

Welcome back! If you haven’t taken courses in over a year, you’ll need to submit an updated admissions application and update your Residency Determination (if it expires before the start term in which you plan to enroll). Because you’ve previously attended, you’re simply re-applying to update your information and eligibility to register for courses.


First, complete your North Carolina Residency Determination. This establishes whether you’ll pay in-state or out-of-state tuition. Once completed, you will be assigned a Residency Certification Number (RCN). Save this number. You’ll need it for the SCC Admission Application.

If you a currently enrolled or previously attended a North Carolina college or university, please review this information:

If you have a valid residency status that will not expire before the term you wish to enroll begins, you do not need to complete the residency process again. You can use your current/valid residency certification number for SCC enrollment. If this is the case, proceed to step two. If your residency application will expire before the term you wish to enroll begins, please continue with the residency application and renew your residency status.

Have access to the following information before you start your residency application:

  • Driver’s License or Non-Driver ID
  • Tax Return Information
  • Vehicle License & Registration Information
  • Social Security Number
  • Voter Registration (if applicable)
  • Immigration Documents (if applicable)

Veterans may need:

  • DD-214 for discharged veterans
  • Certificate of Eligibility for Chapters 30 and 33

If you are under 25 years of age, you will most likely need to complete residency with a parent or legal guardian.

Need assistance completing residency? No problem. Contact Student Services at (910) 788-6358 or the Residency Determination Service at 844-319-3640 or rdsinfo@ncresidency.org.

Need access to a computer, scanner, or fax machine? Visit Student Services located in A-Building.


Now you’re ready to complete the admission application!

Things to remember:

  • It’s free.
  • If you applied within the last year, you do not need to reapply. Please contact Student Services to confirm.
  • When completing your application, if you aren’t sure which major to select, please speak with an advisor.

If you have questions or need assistance with the admission application, contact Student Services at admission@sccnc.edu or 910-788-6279.


If you previously submitted official high school or college transcripts, they should be on file. If for some reason we need you to re-submit any documents, we’ll notify you during the admission process.

If you have earned an associate degree or higher from a regionally accredited college or university, you may submit an official college transcript with a graduation date in place of an official high school transcript. Certain academic programs, including health sciences, require an official high school transcript.

Questions about Transcripts?
