I have been going to SCC for 7 years as a night student in their court reporting program. They excel at teacher/student relations. Teachers and personnel are always willing to help, as long as you can find them. Up until 2012 there was no established curriculum, as you progressed speeds there was no one to explain to you the new expectations or requirements or change of protocol. You had to ask your peers who in turn had asked the peers prior to them. We were told that in 2012 the financial aid board changed the way they credited our program; instead of credits it turned to hours. and then we were given a syllabus. so it took 6 years before actual structure was given to us, which is funny considering i paid $12,000 a year. I have run out of financial aid at this time and I am 6 months away from graduating. I would give SCC an A if they had tested our hearing upon enrollment and if they really told us what graduating as a court reporter entailed, because i feel like they sugar coat the process. and it is a time consuming process that requires 100% dedication, and they dont tell you that when you enroll. I understand that if they were honest with new students they probably wouldnt get as many new students, but with a 41% graduation rate, you have to wonder why 59% of students never complete the program. I want to be a success story. i want to show the school that it may take some time but you will finish and you can do it at nights while still having a full time job. the teachers and administration are so supportive and helpful and they all work in the industry so they know what they are talking about. I just dont like the lack of guidance through out the process. Our classes are smaller than 50 students so one-on-one mentoring is realistic. I have one class with only 4 people in it. I love that aspect of the school. you dont feel like a sardine and you get the attention you need.
