Spartanburg Community College will hold open registration this Monday, Aug. 6, from 9 a.m.-1 p.m at the Union County Advanced Technology Center (UCATC) — a campus shared by the college, USC Union and Union County.
Site Coordinator Kathy Lancaster said students will have an opportunity to complete the entire registration process in Union County, eliminating a commute to Spartanburg.
“They will be able to do everything here that they can do at the central campus,” Lancaster said. “They will be able to talk with a counselor, register for classes, pay tuition and fees and buy books.”
SCC offers a variety of transition level courses at the UCATC for students who need to build foundation skills in areas such as reading, English/Language Arts and mathematics.
SCC also offers foundation courses within the health and human services division at UCATC covering subjects such as anatomy, medical terminology and early childhood development.
“Those courses are geared toward students interested in nursing or working in the medical field,” Lancaster said.
Lancaster also mentioned the school’s awareness of the fact that current and potential businesses of Union are looking for a trained workforce.
“We want to bring citizens into this facility and send them back out into the workforce,” Lancaster said. “We are looking to expand course offerings to better serve business and industry of Union County.”
Although the open registration event is technically scheduled from 9 a.m.-1 p.m., Lancaster said staff will be available until 5 p.m. for latecomers who would still like to register.
