What SCC Is Able to Do Through MN Reconnect
Every adult learner needs different support services to complete their program. After an absence from college, the assistance you need now can look very different than it did originally. South Central College can support you with personalized academic planning and tutoring options, among other services.

Together, you and your Adult Learner Advisor, will design a custom plan for completion of your chosen program. Your academic progress will be evaluated on a continuous basis and you will be connected to the support services that SCC offers to ensure your success.

Scholarships of $1,000 each semester for adult learners from the SCC Campus Foundation and MN Reconnect
Potential to earn college credit for the knowledge you’ve gained in the workplace, military or elsewhere through SCC’s Credit for Prior Learning program
Up to $1,000 to resolve financial holds
