My SSC provides enhanced self-service capabilities for
registration, course planning, student financial information, and email. All students attempting to access My SSC need to have completed the application process.

Any student without a user name and password, needs to visit the Office of Admissions (main campus), with a valid, government issued, photo ID to retrieve your information.

If you do not live in-district, but are using a charge-back agreement, cooperative agreement, work-in-district waiver, etc., you still need to register online, but then must come to the registration counter, on campus, to have your tuition rate adjusted (be sure to bring proper documentation).

Tips to Help You Successfully Register Online:

  • Register for any developmental courses (Reading 080, 081 and 082, English 097, 098, 099 and Math 091, 093, 095, 096, 100) and OCS 121 (if required) first.
  • Make arrangements for payment by the given deadline*, or your classes will be purged (automatically canceled by the computer system) for lack of payment. When this happens, students will need to create a new schedule and choose their classes all over again, and risk not being able to have the class schedule they had originally chosen.
