Visiting & Special Credit Students


In the near future, students applying for admission, transfer, or readmission to any N. C. community college or university must establish residency using a Residency Determination Service (RDS) application. This service will allow a student to use one residency determination (in-state or out-of-state) for admissions applications to multiple NC public colleges and universities and to demonstrate residency for financial aid consideration.

Students enrolled at another college or university who wish to take one or more courses at SCC are considered Special Credit Students. Additionally, if you do not plan on earning a degree, diploma, or certificate, and plan to take for-credit courses for personal or professional enrichment, you are a special credit student. Visiting and Special Credistudents DO NOT qualify for financial aid.

Submit an online SCC Admissions Application online including a residency statement. Be sure to select the Visiting & Special Credit option under the Programs of Study.

Official transcripts are not required. However, high school and/or college transcripts will need to be provided if a student wishes to take a course with a prerequisite. Applicants should request for complete transcripts be sent to the SCC Admissions Office or emailed to

SCC Admissions Office
P.O. Box 318
Clinton, NC 28329

Placement testing for Visiting & Special Credit students is only required if the student wishes to take a course with a prerequisite and that prerequisite has not been met by the test waiver criteria.

Visiting & Special Credit students are required to meet with the Director of Admissions for an Admission Interview prior to acceptance to the college. Students should email or call the Director of Admissions after completing the steps above.

Once approved, the Director of Admissions will register you for courses. Sampson Community College uses an online system called WebAdvisor that can be used to view course descriptions, view availability of sections for a particular course, and pay for classes.

Books will be available for purchase in the SCC Bookstore located in the Warren Student Center. View Campus Map.
