Campus image of Southeastern Community College

Southeastern Community College is an educational institution with roots deep in the local community.  With campuses in Burlington, Ft. Madison, and Keokuk, Iowa, SCC is educating Iowa! Offering a broad range of programs from TV Animation and Film to Welding and Graphic Communications, SCC is a great school for students seeking job certification or those wishing to earn an associate degree and transfer to a baccalaureate institution following graduation. 

Of course, Southeastern students invest a good deal of time in the pursuit of knowledge. But everyone knows that well-rounded students do more than study. In order to keep their mental faculties sharp and primed, they need rest and recreation!

Southeastern’s in-state and out-of-state tuition rates are extremely attractive, running literally thousands of dollars below U.S. college and university national averages.  Students who want a high-dollar education at a very attractive price will find SCC the smart choice. Those who need financial assistance can apply for financial aid and/or take advantage of Southeastern’s many scholarships.
