Prepare for College

Spokane Community College (SCC) and Spokane Falls Community College (SFCC) offer affordable College Prep classes that help get you off to a good start.

If you want to go to college, but need to tune up your skills first, consider taking a College Prep course. Spokane Community College (SCC) and Spokane Falls Community College (SFCC) offer affordable College Prep classes to get you off to a good start. We even have a convenient online class.

Studies show you are more likely to stay in college and complete your educational goals if you first complete a college prep or other programs like SCC and SFCC offer. You don't earn college credit but they are organized like college-level credit classes, with similar amounts of homework, student expectations and increased academic difficulty.

Who can take College Prep courses?

These classes are for students with a GED® or high school diploma and ESL students who meet entrance requirements necessary for enrollment (An SCC counselor decides if you meet entrance requirements during your enrollment meeting.) College Prep courses also are great for adults who have been away from school for a while and need to refresh their skills.
