Tuition & Fees

General Tuition Information

SCC strives to keep its tuition and fees as affordable as possible. Students with questions on how their College bill is calculated may call Student Accounts at 856.351.2606.


Tuition Assurance Program new for 2017

The Tuition Assurance Program (TAP) guarantees the tuition rate for full-time students for the duration of their SCC studies.  TAP locks in students’ per-credit rate at the time of their first registration and students keep that rate as long as they maintain continuous, full-time enrollment (excluding summer term). However, students who fall below full-time status due to a course drop will lose TAP eligibility.

*The simplified structure will add 9 percent to overall costs for new students. This increase is the first in four years for in-county students. TAP protects you from any future increases.


Payment Plans

Payment plans are available during certain times of the semester. Please contact Student Accounts for more information at 856.351.2606.
