    Compared to bigger schools around, its cheaper. But it's a private college, so the tuition will go up year to year. It's expected since they don't get normal institutional funding like public colleges. Common sense folks.

    Though due to no dorm option, and meal-plan option, this school is cheaper than some; especially because EVERY student is usually a "in-state" student; I still wouldn't tell ANYONE to waste there money here, THIS SCHOOL LACKS IN PERSONALITY, and SOCIAL EXPERIENCES.

    The benefits of SCC are a Christ centered education at a reasonable cost. The faculty and staff are compassionate, helpful servants wanting only the very best for SCC students. My cohort has become a second family to me as we learn along side of one another. It is exciting to go to class every Monday night, not only to learn, but also to be vested not only in my education but also in the lives of the precious classmates I enjoy.
