Dual or concurrent enrollment offered in all three counties in SCC's service area
Spartanburg Community College’s concurrent enrollment program received full accreditation from the National Alliance of Concurrent Enrollment Partnerships Accreditation Commission, becoming the first school in South Carolina to have its concurrent enrollment program accredited by the body.
In a concurrent enrollment partnership, participating high schools offer courses designed by their partnering higher education institution, and the courses are taught by the high school’s faculty members. In earning accreditation for the program, SCC can attest those courses taught as part of the partnership meet the highest standards of quality and qualify as the courses of choice for high school students seeking college credit.
SCC offers either dual enrollment or concurrent enrollment at all high schools in its service area of Spartanburg, Cherokee, and Union counties. Two of the college’s largest providers of concurrent enrollment are Spartanburg County School District 6 and the Cherokee County School District.
NACEP accreditation is valid for five years for the initial term and then seven years for reaccreditation. The college offers dual enrollment courses at all high schools in its service area tuition-free as part of its free tuition initiative. It recently established a team of College Transition Coordinators that maintain a near constant presence in area schools to aid students as they begin looking at their options in higher education. The school has also secured direct transfer agreements with a number of area colleges and universities, ensuring that students who earn an associate degree can seamlessly continue their education. Converse University, Limestone University, Gardner-Webb University, and USC Upstate are among the schools with such an agreement in place.
