I loved the environment at SCC, they have a wonderful set of professors and staff. I had a wonderful experience at this school and found it easy to transition from High school to college at SCC. The staff were friendly and helped me with any questions that I had. The advisors are very helpful and will help all students with scheduling and making sure you have the classes needed to complete your degree. I just completed my last semester at SCC and received my Associate's degree in Arts. I took both online and in person classes and I enjoyed both. Somerset Community College is the perfect school for anyone, throughout my experience there, I met students of all ages. I had peers that were straight out of high school, some who had tried college before and came back to school, others who wanted to further their education and make a career change and more. I encourage anyone who is hesitant about going to college or needs guidance on their journey to attend Somerset Community College.

I find the college to be very organized and everyone is very helpful, in trying to provide the best college experience possible. I enjoy going to school here, I am in the Respiratory Therapy Program at the Laurel Campus and the school is always clean and the staff is amazing!
I love this school! I can take most the of classes that I want online, and it is not too expensive. All the professors that I have ever talked to were always super helpful and really cared for their students.
