Student Accounts

Student Accounts will help you understand and meet your financial obligations while you pursue your education at Southeast Community College. We are committed to providing you professional support while maintaining our core values of excellence, integrity, innovation, inclusion, stewardship and accountability.

Tuition and fees can be found on the Costs page.

Living on campus helps you stay focused and connected to your classmates. It is also a convenient and cost-efficient. We currently offer apartment-style and suite-style residence halls on our Beatrice and Milford campuses. On-campus living will be available on the Lincoln Campus in January 2024. 

The hands-on nature of an education at SCC equips you with the technical skills needed to be successful in the workforce. While we supply a majority of the tools and equipment needed in the classroom, you may be required to purchase specific tools, uniforms and personal protective equipment. If you are applying for financial aid, these items are factored into the total cost of attendance for these programs.

You can find detailed lists for each program requiring tools, uniforms and personal protective equipment in the Campus Store and in Admissions. Uniforms are available through the Campus Store while tool companies visit the college throughout the school year. We strongly encourage you to carry insurance for your personally owned tools and equipment.

As a Southeast Community College student, you are required to cover the costs for books, tools, supplies, uniforms, travel, student activity fees and other educational items. Costs vary depending on the requirements of your Program of Study and individual needs. Cost estimates are available for each Program of Study under the Costs & Info tab on each program webpage.

You will be billed electronically – paper billing statements are not mailed. eBills are sent to your student email address on or before the 20th of every month. You can also view your online billing statement on The Hub.

  • Tuition and fees

If you have to withdrawal from a class or classes, you will want to know the requirements and procedures for receiving a refund.

External scholarships are awarded by organizations outside of SCC. Once you are notified of your award, it is your responsibility to:

  • notify the Financial Aid Office with the scholarship amount.
  • provide information about the external scholarship to Student Accounts to ensure we handle the funds as outlined by the awarding organization. Please include your name and ID number (if available).

Once processing is complete, the funds will be credited to your account. You will want to watch for communications from Student Accounts as you may be required to endorse a check before it can be applied to your account.

If you are concerned your scholarship may not be sent by your tuition due date, please contact the organization awarding the scholarship for an estimated delivery date. Once you have that date, contact Student Accounts.

However, if you are an employee at an organization or business coordinating customized/contract training with SCC and you have an existing financial obligation, you will be allowed to attend training. This policy only pertains to credit and non-credit provided to an organization/business as part of customized/contract training and is not open enrollment for the general public.

The 1098-T is an informational form outlining qualifying third-party payments or scholarships made to the college on a student’s account for a specific calendar year. If you receive a 1098-T form, you should contact a tax professional or refer to the IRS website about education related tax benefits or implications before filing your taxes. As defined by the IRS, a qualifying payment includes balances paid towards the cost of tuition, fees and course material required for enrollment.

If you agreed to receive your 1098-T form electronically, it will be available in the Web Info System after Jan. 31st. Physical copies will be mailed via USPS by Jan. 31st if you opted out of receiving an electronic copy.

SCC contracts with ECSI to prepare 1098-T forms. You may visit the ESCI website for your electronic 1098-T form, or if no electronic constant has been provided to ECSI a paper form will be mailed to you. Contact ECSI at 1-866-428-1098 if you did not receive a form, need a replacement or have general questions about the 1098-T form.

SCC does not provide tax advice. Please consult your tax advisor if you need assistance with tax laws associated with the 1098-T form.
