SEWARD COUNTY COMMUNITY COLLEGE

WE ARE YOUR EDUCATION

PARTNER

Mission Statement Seward County Community College provides opportunities to enrich & improve each person’s life through a range of academic programs, including technical education, certificate and degree programs, and transferable degree programs, for the advancement

With classes for everyone —from kindergarten children to retirees, and every age in between —Seward County Community College fully embraces diverse learning styles, individual needs and interests, and the end goal of encouraging the development of lifelong learners. In this informational booklet, you will take a look inside classrooms of every imaginable kind. More than 500 students a year filter through the Colvin Adult Learning Center to learn English as a Second Language, complete Graduate Equivalency Diplomas, and prepare for the U.S. Citizenship test. At the north campus, Career Tech Ed classes offer multiple, stackable entry points for working professionals, high school students preparing for the workforce, and traditional tech-ed courses for residents and commuters. On the main campus, our humanities, math & science, business, ag and personal services divisions will soon be joined by the Allied Health students pursuing five health care professional certifications. Along the way, SCCC offers Seward Online courses, BlendFlex classes that combine online, face to face, and virtual classroom experiences, EduKan partnership classes for distance learning and many partnerships with Kansas Board of Regents Schools. Business & Industry partners routinely schedule update and refresher courses on campus, provide internships, and consult on continuing education needs. That same B&I model offers life skills, hobby and craft courses, exercise, business, and even children’s classes. Summer brings Kids College to campus, where students from kindergarten through middle school explore learning for pleasure. Learning, we believe, is something everyone should be able to experience and enjoy.

Our role as a community college means we introduce people to higher education. Changing demographics in our region mean that around 70 percent of young people will be first-generation college students, a world that’s unfamiliar to them and their families. High school students can earn early college credit through classes taught at LHS and on-campus options at SCCC. If you hold master’s level credits in key subject areas, you can earn extra income as an adjunct instructor.

Coming to Seward allowed me to stay close to my family, keep working at a good job, and save some money.When I went to K-State, I was in good shape academically and financially. Southwest Kansas is home for me. I love it. It’s a good place to start a business and raise a family, and those things are my ultimate goals. Chiropractor Dr. Uriel Estrada, Liberal

Transfer p

Allied Health programs offer ma Students interested in a career in the health industry have many more choices than is commonly known. Thanks to the Allied Health programs at SCCC, high school students in our Outreach network can access early college studies. Some earn a Certified Nurse Aide certification or a Certified Medication Aide certificate while still attending high school, and go directly to work in area nursing homes. Others go on to get a certificate in phlebotomy, or take college-level anatomy and physiology classes. These offerings provide a first-level glimpse into the field of Allied Health. Once enrolled as college students at SCCC, students must complete a panel of general education prerequisites before application to the four Allied Health programs. While the current facilities at the former Epworth Hospital are equipped with state-of-the-art medical manikins, instructional space is limited, which in turn limits the number of nursing students in each
