SOUTH HOLLAND, IL – Registration for the Fall Semester at South Suburban College is still in progress for a wide range of “Late Start” classes. Current and prospective students are encouraged to register soon for these 12-week courses, set to begin the week of September 19, 2016.
Prospective students should get started with the Online Application at www.ssc.edu. Becoming a student is simple, and there is still time to apply for Financial Aid and speak with Admissions staff and counselors. Once the application process is complete, new students will receive an SSC email account and a “My SSC” Username & Password via email which will allow access to student information and class registration. The “My SSC” portal also allows students 24-hour access during college closed periods. Both interactive and printable Fall Credit Class Schedules are also accessible online from www.ssc.edu.
The Late Start classes are offered in a variety of subject areas including Accounting, Art, Basic Nurse Assistant Training, Biology, Business, Community Health Worker, Computer Information Sciences, Court Reporting, Drama, Emergency Medical Services, Emergency Medical Technician, English, Health Information Technology, Health & Wellness, Foundations for College Success (OCS), Human Services, Mathematics, Manufacturing, Medical Assistant, Music, Nutrition, Office Administration & Technology, Pharm Tech, Philosophy, Physical Education, Psychology, Reading, Sociology, Spanish, Speech, Study Skills, Welding and more.
Payment is currently due at the time of registration for Late Start classes, but Financial Aid can be utilized for the 12-week credit classes (FAFSA must be completed by September 12). SSC’s Financial Aid Office encourages all students to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) as early as possible at fafsa.gov using institution code 001769.
