SCCC Description

Suffolk County Community College (SCCC)– Selden, also known as the Ammerman Campus, works to make its academics accessible to all of the local residents. Located just off Exit 62 of I-495, the Ammerman Campus is conveniently accessible by car or bus, so you can take advantage of SCCC’s diverse educational opportunities without going out of your way.

The Ammerman Campus offers a number of academic services. The Transfer Program is a great way to get ready for a four-year program without breaking the bank, and professionally oriented associate’s degrees and certificates can help give your career a boost. Non-credit continuing education and professional development courses are also available, if you need to become licensed or simply want to expand your skill set.

SCCC Selden has an open admissions policy. This means that non-degree students can enroll freely in credit or non-credit courses. Though additional admissions requirements apply to degree-seeking students, the process is simple and can be completed online.

Financial aid is available at the Ammerman Campus, primarily via need-based federal programs. The FAFSA is required for these programs, and SCCC recommends applying by April 15 to ensure full consideration.

There was nothing I liked. Truthfully I suggest to many to do what they can to avoid suffolk. I struggle to give the school a compliment in any way. If I have to say one positive thing about the school is that I always have an interesting story to share with my friends.

I had a very good experience at Suffolk. I attended the Brentwood Grant Campus from Fall 05 through Spring 07 and received my Associate's Degree in Liberal Arts & Sciences. For that phase of my development Suffolk was the right place for me to be, I didn't know what or where I wanted to go in life and Suffolk offered affordable and quality education in a safe environment where I was able to complete all of my general education courses as well as a few very interesting and memorable courses such as Astronomy and studying the Holocaust. Learning about the stars in the planetarium in the Sagtikos building is an experience I will never forget. Suffolk offers a lot of student services and should you put in the effort you can take away a lot more than you would think you could get out of Community College. I would recommend this for anyone who wants to stay home on Long Island, wants to avoid huge student loans or is only looking for a 2 year degree.
