  This problem should be fixed as of April 28, 2008 for most users. In case you are still getting it, see the explanation below.

Internet Explorer version 7 ("IE 7") shows a "Security Error" when accessing the new MySCCC because certain information IE 7 is looking for is not found. We expect this to be updated in the future. In the meantime, in order to access the new MySCCC using IE 7, select the option "allow the connection -- not recommended" on the Security Window that opens when you enter the new MySCCC.
 
  It is scheduled to be discontinued by August 2008. The sooner you accustom yourself to the new MySCCC, the easier it will be.
 
  The Banner Secure Login Channel may appear like a Web Advertisement to several browser plugins and security programs.

If you are having problems with the display or folder access in this channel, the best solution is to disable these applications for the MySCCC site. Most applications will allow you to selectively disable processing by URL so you should not need to disable processing for all sites.
  Link to Example Screen
 
  The browser "BACK" button should not be used when navigating from Banner Self Service pages in the new MySCCC. In certain situations, use of the back button will display a very detailed but not very useful (for Banner users) error page.

Instead, always use the "Back to [Faculty /or/ Student /or/ HR] Tab" on the left side of the header bar at the top of your screen.

Should you use the back button and be presented with an error page, use this same tab to return to MySCCC
 
  You may receive a "username password pair not found" error when you try to log onto the new MySCCC with your old MySCCC ID.

Your "old" student MySCCC ID and password will not work with the "new" MySCCC. The student and faculty/staff portals are no longer separate. Use your College ID and password for the "new" MySCCC.

However, you will not be able to do "single sign on" once inside of the new portal. If you click on the link to the old MySCCC on the Student tab of the new portal, you will need to login using your old MySCCC username and password for access. This is a temporary situation as the Old MySCCC will be discontinued in August.
 
  Currently, direct access to the new MySCCC portal requires an upgrade to the College's wireless network. However, MySCCC can be reached now by going through an intermediate site.

For Students: Enter "https://mysccc-roam.sunysuffolk.edu" in your browser or click on the Student Wireless link below. Log in using your portal username and password and then click the link to MySCCC.

For Faculty: Enter "https://roam.sunysuffolk.edu" in your browser or click on the Faculty/Staff Wireless link below. Log in using your network username and password and then click the link to MySCCC (New Faculty Portal).

Please note: both sites above use private certificates and may present security warnings. This is normal. Simply select the choice to proceed to the site.

  Being undecided and searching for a career can be exciting but scary. Try telling yourself that you are just beginning your journey into discovering who you are, what you want to do, and where you want to go. While the answers may not come easily, you can begin by making full use of the resources available to you at Suffolk. Start by checking out the Career Planning Process in this Web site. Then, make an appointment with a career counselor to learn more about your interests, values, and abilities and discuss your educational and career plans.
  Career Planning Process
 
  The career services/cooperative education office on your campus can help in a variety of ways. Professional staff is available to discuss your qualifications, skills, interests, and general career direction. They can help you focus in on the type of job you are looking for and make you aware of appropriate job opportunities. In addition, they can help you develop your skills in such areas as resume writing, interviewing, and job search strategies.
 
  A wonderful way to gain experience related to your major is through a cooperative education or internship program. These programs offer you an opportunity to gain work experience in your field of study, earn academic credit, and, in the case of cooperative education, even get paid. Check out the Cooperative Education and Internship section for additional information.
  Cooperative Education and Internships
 
  You can find employment on campus in one of several ways. First, if you qualify for financial aid and have been given a Federal Work-Study award, you will be able to find a position in a campus office or department. You can also contact the private vendors who run the bookstore and the cafeteria and apply for a part-time job directly through them. In addition, it is not uncommon for academic departments, learning centers, and administrative offices to hire students, either as tutors or student aides. Check with your campus Career Service for more information.
 
  The professional staff in the career services/cooperative education office can help you develop a résumé that presents your education, skills, and experiences in the best possible light. Whether you are looking for a job now or just want to update your résumé for future use, it's best to give it that marketable edge. Check out the résumé links in the Conducting your Job Search section, and then schedule an appointment to meet with us today.
  Conducting your Job Search
 
  You may ask questions at any campus Cashier's Office, or you may refer to other portions of this Web site. Cashier's Offices are located in the Ammerman Building at the Ammerman campus, Caumsett Hall at the Grant campus and the Peconic Building at the Eastern campus.
 
  Payment is the final step in registration. Your registration is complete only if you have done the following:
  1. fully paid your tuition and fees;
  2. joined the Tuition Payment Plan (TPP);
  3. arranged for an approved third party to cover your charges;
  4. made specific arrangements to settle your account with the college; OR
  5. confirmed your attendance on the Web if your financial aid covered your entire balance.
 
  Late registration begins one week prior to the first day of the session. If you register late you will be charged a $30.00 late fee.
 
  In order to start classes, you must do one of the following by your payment due date:
  • pay your total balance due; or
  • sign up for the Tuition Payment Plan which requires you to pay a fee plus one-third of your tuition; or
  • if financial aid covers all of your tuition, confirm your attendance on the Web no later than the due date on your bill.
 
  You must pay your bill by the due date printed on the bill. Otherwise, you will lose your schedule.
 
 
  • Use the My SCCC icon above; or
  • by mail, to the address indicated on the bill; or
  • at any of the campus Cashier Offices.
      Cashier Offices
     
      If you qualify, the TPP allows you to pay your bill in three installments. You will be charged a $50.00 non-refundable fee to use the TPP. Students who miss the second and third payments are charged a $30.00 late fee for each missed payment. You can sign up for the TPP by mail, at the college Web site or by visiting any campus Cashier's Office.
      Tuition Payment Plan
     
      Students who owe the college more than the cost of three credits are allowed to use the TPP for the spring and fall semesters only. The TPP cannot be used for non-credit courses. The TPP rules are on the back of your bill. The front of the bill shows the amount you must pay to sign up for the TPP.
      Tuition Payment Plan
     
      You are responsible for ALL tuition and fee charges. Even if another (third) party has agreed to accept your entire liability, if they don't pay, you are still liable.
     
      You can use other funds to cover your tuition and fee payments if you have valid documentation. This documentation may include financial aid awards, scholarships, and agreements from third-party agencies who guarantee your payment. Documentation from the third-party agency which states that the agency will pay all or part of your bill must be brought to the Business Office. The campus business officer will make the determination to accept or reject the deferral. The college will accept a third-party agreement only if there are no grade or attendance conditions specified. If the third party doesn't pay the college, you are responsible for payment.
     
      If the balance printed on your bill says "$0" (zero) it means EITHER you paid your bill in full OR financial aid has fully covered your charges. If financial aid has covered your charges, then you must confirm your attendance on My SCCC no later than the due date listed on your bill.
      Access Your Records
     
      Your schedule will be cancelled.
     
      If your financial aid has been approved, your bill will reflect your award. If you received an award notice but there is no financial aid credit on your bill, you must contact your campus Financial Aid Office.
      Financial Aid Offices
     
      If an award was made, it will be posted to your account and will be reflected on your bill. If the award was not received in time, it will not appear on the bill. If you were notified that you received a scholarship and it is not appearing on your bill, you must contact the office that notified you of the scholarship.
     
      If your charges go down, a refund check will be mailed to you sometime after the third week of the semester. If your charges go up, you will receive a bill for additional monies owed.
     
      Refunds are determined by the start date of the session, not the date of the classes you take, the length of the class, and whether or not fees are refundable. Non-refundable fees are NOT refundable once school starts; refundable fees are.

    For classes more than eight weeks long, 100 percent of tuition and refundable fees are refunded before the start of the session. After that, 75 percent is refunded in the first seven calendar days (days 1-7); 50 percent is refunded in the next seven days (days 8-14); and 25 percent is refunded in the following seven (days 15-21) days. After that, there are no refunds.

    For classes eight weeks long or less, 100 percent is refunded before the start of class and 25 percent is refunded in the next seven calendar days (days 1-7). The only exception to this is for a class that is less than one week in length, where students must withdraw before the first meeting in order to receive a refund.

      Refund Policy
     
      No. Only some fees are refundable.
      Refund Policy
     
      You will be charged late payment fees of $30 each time you don't pay your bill. This can get expensive, so you are strongly advised to pay your bills. At the end of the semester, you will receive a final demand for payment letter. If you do not pay after receiving this notice, your account will be referred to the college's collection agency for action. In addition, you will have a hold placed on your records, and will be blocked from registering for a future semester.
     
      If your account is referred to a collection agency, your amount due will increase to cover the collection agency charges, fees, interest assessments and other costs associated with collection activity.
     
      Your child may be picked up only by the people that you have authorized in writing, and are listed in our files, to do so.
     
      Breakfast, lunch, and snacks are provided for all children by the center. We serve balanced, nutritious meals and snacks. Parents of infants may provide their own formula and baby food or choose to use ours.
     
      Our lunch is prepared by the campus cafeteria and transported in certified carriers to the center. Breakfast and snacks, which are usually foods that require no cooking (e.g., cereal, milk, fresh fruit, etc.), are provided by the center.
     
      Parents need to supply diapers (not pull-ups) for their child and a small box of wipes labeled with their child's name.
     
      All children in the group are required to go out together as part of the day's planned activities. We go outdoors to play every day except during rainy or frigid weather.
     
      Children who attend the center must be free of communicable disease and be able to fully participate in our program. Therefore, children who are sick must stay at home until well.
     
      Children are welcome to share books, tapes or curriculum materials with their friends; however, children should leave their toys at home. Infants and toddlers who are experiencing separation anxiety may bring something comforting from home to ease their transition.
     
      Our centers offer a complete program of daily activities designed to enhance the physical, emotional, social and intellectual needs of each child in an age-appropriate environment.
     
      You should try to enroll your child as soon as you have registered for classes for the next semester. Children who are currently enrolled in our centers are given priority during the priority registration period. Following this two-week period, enrollment is on a first come, first served basis.
     
      Children under the age of three do not need to be toilet trained. When your child enters the older groups (i.e., 3-5 year olds), it is necessary to be toilet trained.
     
      Our centers always maintain the state-required ratios and often exceed what is required. In the infants and toddler rooms (i.e., children under the age of three), the ratio is 4:1, or 5:1 for a group of 10. In the older groups (i.e., 3-5 year olds), the ratio is 8:1.
     
      We make every effort to help parents customize their schedules in order to meet their educational and personal needs, although a three-hour per day minimum is required. Our goal is to work out a schedule that will help you succeed in your classes and graduate.
     
      The director has access to your schedule and will be able to contact you in class. If we are unable to contact you, we will call the emergency numbers that you have provided when enrolling your child. If there is an emergency and we cannot find you or your contacts, the director of the center will take the appropriate action as explained in the Parent's Handbook.
      Parent's Handbook
     
      All center staff are fingerprinted and cleared by the New York State Clearance Board. In addition, the director also carefully checks references from previous employment. New employees are on probation for the first six months, and all employees are supervised and evaluated on a regular basis.
     
      College announcements are sent to students in their email accounts and by posting items in the MySCCC portal. The college expects students to regularly access the portal and maintain their email account. Students are responsible for the information displayed in the portal and/or sent to their email account.
     
      The New MySCCC is the College new Banner student portal. Beginning with the Fall of 2008 Semester all functions previously accessed through the Old MySCCC will be available through the new portal. This includes registration, transcript ordering, changing your information and performing degree audits. IMPORTANT NOTE FOR ALL CONTINUING SCCC STUDENTS: Until we fully transition to the new portal, you will need to log in to My "Old" SCCC to access any information pertaining to the 2008 spring and summer semesters. Please see the two login options to the left.
      "New" MySccc
     
      Email and on-campus Internet access is available at no cost to SCCC students currently enrolled in credit classes. Accounts will be active only for the semester a student is enrolled at SCCC. Upon expiration, material left in an account will be deleted. If you have never logged in to MySCCC before, please enter your Student ID# or Social Security Number (for Username) and your six-digit date of birth in MMDDYY format (for Password). You will then be assigned a new Username and be asked to create your new Password.
     
      MySCCC - student portal access is self-activated by students. The icon for MySCCC is linked from the SCCC homepage. New students can activate their account once they have a schedule. The icon on the home page will open to the signon window. Directions for account access are in green on the left.
      IT Policies and Guidelines
     
      If part of a course assignment, individual students may create web pages. See the section on Classes below. The Office of Computer and Information Systems does not currently have the resources to provide direct support to students for developing home pages. If questions arise, students should direct these to the faculty member for the course requiring the web assignment. Appropriate use policies for college network accounts apply to home pages. Students are responsible for adhering to these policies in order to maintain access to WWW resources. http://www3.sunysuffolk.edu/Administration/IT/Help/policies/WWWPol.htm

      Although monetary compensation is appreciated, this program is meant to provide a learning experience while earning credit. The college is mindful of the guidelines for Fair Labor Standards for Internship Programs as established by the U.S. Department of Labor. Pay is determined by the employer and often depends on the level and type of skills required. Positions in many fields are unpaid. Always discuss pay before accepting any position.
     
      The majority of students work within a 20-mile radius of school or home, but it may be necessary for you to travel further for the experience that suits you best. Some students travel into NYC, to Florida for the Disney co-op, to Albany to work in the State Senate; we have had students as far as Sydney, Australia and Rabat, Morocco. The possibilities are endless, but only if you search them out.
     
      The co-ops/interns we offer are a reflection of what's going on in the world of work. They may be with large companies, home-based businesses, government, schools, or other non-profit organizations. The degree of responsibility varies with each placement, depending on the needs of the employer as well as the student's skills, maturity, and academic background. The description of your experience should be discussed before accepting the offer.
     
      The majority of students attending Suffolk are employed, so most of our students are in this same situation. Remember, since this is a credit-bearing course it is considered part of your course load; therefore, you can schedule the time needed as you would for any other course. Remember the time you spend in the field is in place of additional class time, research, testing etc. In addition, the employers who hire our co-op and internship students understand that being a student comes first so, except in certain situations, they are generally willing to work around your school schedule. Please be aware that blocks of time of 4-5 hours are preferred by most employers.
     
      The seminar gives students the opportunity to thoroughly evaluate the learning experience and their performance on the job, to develop workplace skills in such areas as communications and problem solving, and to learn from the experiences of their classmates. In addition it keeps students directly connected to a faculty member from the program and provides support for issues and as well as professional development.
     
      Class schedules differ for each program and campus and often change from one semester to the next. Check the schedule of classes for current days and times.
     
      It is best to speak to the co-op representative on your home campus, or area faculty in your curriculum, well before enrolling in a co-op program (i.e., during priority registration would be the perfect time). Some of the classes will be blocked for enrollment until you have emailed to internships@sunysuffolk.edu. Be sure to include your name, student ID number and the designated course. This prescreening assures you that you are eligible, that you are in the right seminar, and that the co-op representative will have ample time to work with you to find the right experience.
     
      Our students are often asked to stay on for part-time or full-time work after completing the program. Many employers and students use the cooperative education or internship placement as an opportunity to check each other out to see if a long-term commitment is desirable. Once you have completed the course requirements and the semester is over, it's up to you and the employer to discuss the terms of any future employment.
     
      No, it is your responsibility to find an outside agency or psychologist that is qualified to do any psychoeducational testing that may be needed. Contact the disability services counselor on your home campus for a referral list.
     
      Not automatically. Information about your disability or the services and accommodations you received in high school is not sent to Suffolk without your written authorization. Therefore, it is your responsibility to notify the disability services counselor that you are requesting special services, and then to provide the supporting documentation that is needed. At this point, you will meet with the counselor and determine the accommodations and services that are necessary in your particular case. When you start classes, your instructors will then be given the proper notification.
     
      There are no special classes for students with disabilities. In addition, while certain accommodations and adjustments in the academic program are possible, all students, regardless of disability, must satisfy the essential academic requirements of their specific courses as well as their programs of study.
     
      Special test-taking arrangements are limited to such things as extended time, a special location, an alternate testing format, use of a reader, etc. Proctors may not assist you with the content in any way.
     
      No, the specific details and any personal information about your disability are considered confidential. However, your instructors will be notified that you have a documented disability and are therefore entitled to receive certain services and accommodations. In addition, you will be asked to give the disability services counselor permission to discuss the general nature of your disability with faculty as it relates to your academic progress.
     
      Handicapped parking permits are available from your town office after showing proof of a physical disability and the necessary vehicle information. Temporary permits are also available from your town for disabilities lasting at least four weeks. For other temporary medical conditions that require special parking privileges, contact the Health Services Office on your home campus.
     
      No, the information regarding your disability is a confidential matter. Your professors will be notified by letter that you have a disability and are entitled to certain services and accommodations. We suggest that you meet privately with your professors during their office hours to discuss how these services and accommodations will be provided, and to discuss any additional details that may be important to your academic success.
     
      If you have been unsuccessful in trying to resolve the matter directly with the faculty member or other individual(s) involved, then you should contact the disability services counselor and/or the Dean of Student Services for an in-depth discussion of the situation. If the situation can still not be resolved to your satisfaction and you feel that your rights are being violated, you should contact the ADA compliance officer, the Executive Assistant to the President, for additional information about established grievance procedures.
     
     

    Distance education is defined by Suffolk County Community College in its broadest context to be inclusive of those teaching/learning methodologies and strategies that are computer-based and technology-mediated. The basic premise of distance education is to allow students to participate in the learning process from a distant location and not necessarily in real time.

    Synchronous distance learning classroom courses are, in fact, conducted in real-time and at more than one campus location.

    Asynchronous courses are those in which the course content, assignments and all student/student or student/faculty interactions are conducted online via computer over the Internet.

    Blended/Hybrid courses meet both on-campus and online during the semester.

    Telecourses require class meetings on-campus and viewing of video materials independently. Distance learning courses, then, are intended for students who may find that distance education suits their learning needs or lifestyles better than traditional on-campus instruction and these courses are offered to ensure maximum accessibility to Suffolk County Community College’s extensive educational opportunities.

    To view Distance Education Modalities (Course Types) click on Distance_Education_Modalities
     
     

    Distance Education courses are attractive options for individuals who are self-motivated and can work independently in a less structured learning environment. Distance Education courses are fully credited college courses. There is no difference in WHAT you are expected to learn. It is the WAY you learn that is different.

    As with any college course, you should enroll in distance education courses only if you are serious about studying college-level material each week without leaving your home to come to campus. When taking a telecourse, for example, you are required to view all of the video lessons, complete all assignments (e.g., essay exams, research papers, etc.) and read all printed material. Many students report that distance education courses actually require MORE work than traditional on-campus courses. These same students also report that they learn just as much, if not more, from a distance education course.

    Those who succeed as distance learners

    - are highly motivated

    - are independent

    - are active learners

    - have good organizational and time management skills

    - have the discipline to study without external reminders

    - can adapt to new learning environments

    The above are precisely the qualities needed to succeed in any learning environment, but the distance learning context puts special pressures on learners to be both independent and self-disciplined. Success in fully online asynchronous courses, as example, depends on a combination of personal motivation, the ability to understand and use computer technology, self-direction in managing coursework deadlines, and a willingness to use solely the written word to communicate with both the instructor and classmates.
     
      Admission and registration procedures for distance education courses are the same as for on-campus courses. Tuition, including fees, for education courses is the same as for all other courses. Consult the college catalog or Web site for these particulars.

    For all distance education courses, there is an additional $65.00 fee.

    For additional information on SCCC's distance education courses and programs go to the

    Online Learning website

     
     

    This depends on the modality of the course you are enrolled into. For further details please go to

    Have you received an eMail that wants you to supply personal info? PHISHING SCAM ALERT !!

    Many of us have received emails in our college accounts (or at home) that seem to have been sent by an institution that needs personal information from us. It may be a "bank" saying your account has been compromised, a "college" asking you to confirm your email address, or a common service like PayPal or eBay telling you that your account is restricted and may be locked or deleted if you don't respond right away!

    There's a good chance you are the target of phishing.

    Phishing is an attempt by criminals hiding behind the "cloud" of the Internet to fool people into believing that are receiving real mail from a trusted institution. If you click the link in the email you will be brought to a real-looking page that starts by asking you to login to your account; or they might ask you to confirm your email by giving them your email password; or they might ask you for your social security number to "prove" who you are. If you comply, criminals may now have your real login, password and critical personal information

    "Phishers" may actually go so far as to set up a site that looks like a real bank, financial, or other site you are familiar with. This is not as difficult as you might think. Because of the open nature of the web, it is no problem to copy a legitimate company's images and graphics from their real site. Someone who would steal your personal information for fraud is not going to worry about stealing some pictures.

    This "site" will typically have links, such as a help link, home page, and others that link to the real company's own pages. They know you may click on some of these links in a quest to determine whether the swindler's page is the real deal. Don't be fooled!
      Wikipedia article on Phishing
      Details of "Citibank" Phishing Scam
      FBI's Description of some newer phishing scams
     
      It's easier than you might think. Never click a link in an email that leads to a login page. Never fill in information in a form that was emailed to you. Never open an attachment that you are not expecting to receive from a trusted person that you personally know who has informed you it is coming.

    If you are presented with a login box on any page reached through an email link, don't use it! Better to go to the trouble of typing in the known URL (web address) of the institution and logging in from there.

    Sometimes legitimate institutions you know will send you emails with "convenience" links to look at merchandise, check your account, see your bill. Should you click these? Ask yourself: Am I absolutely sure this is what I think it is? If you have even the slightest doubt, isn't it better to be safe than sorry?

    If you receive a "scary" message that you are afraid might be real ("Your Hometown Bank account has been accessed by a person in a foreign country and money was withdrawn. If you did not authorize this transaction, access your account with the link below.") call your bank on the telephone with the phone number on your statement, or use the phone book. They will be happy to assist and may also want the information in the scam email.
     
      This is an actual email that was received at SCCC mailboxes:

    From: Wachovia Bank [mailto:customerservice.id0350-655194831id@wachovia.com]
    Sent: Tuesday, April 29, 2008 7:44 PM
    To: [ Real name of SCCC recipient removed ]
    Subject: secure confirmation. (Tue, 29 Apr 2008 16:43:04 -0800)

    Dear Wachovia Bank customer,

    We would like to inform you that we are currently carrying out scheduled maintenance.

    In order to guarantee the high level of security to our business customers, we require you to complete "Wachovia Commercial Online Form".

    Please complete Wachovia Commercial Online Form using the link below:

    http://commercial.wachovia.com/Online/Financial/Business/Service?action=form_id486155810240017463109805115296865594973853579106294039&session=254180160

    This is auto-generated email, please do not respond to this email.


    There is only one "clue" that might give someone not alert to phishing pause: the rather odd grammar of "we require you to complete 'Wachovia Commercial Online Form'." where an English speaker might expect to see an article such as "the" or "our" before the name of the form.

    However, suppose this "error" wasn't there? You can't be confident that an email trying to get information from you is real because it "looks right." This email seems to be from Wachovia bank according to the code in the links you can see. But links can be "spoofed" (counterfeited). If you could look at the code behind these "real" links you would see they don't link to Wachovia Bank at all.

If this is your first time filing the FAFSA you will need to also apply for a PIN number to sign your FAFSA application. If you are dependent your parent will also need to apply for a PIN number. 2) A reminder notice will be mailed to continuing or transfer students who applied previously. 3) Be sure to include Suffolk County Community College as your college choice on the FAFSA.
      FAFSA
     
      Your first step in applying for a student loan is filling out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). When the college receives your data from the Department of Education, some may be automatically awarded a Direct Loan. If your award package does not include a loan you can request a loan by filling out the "Loan Request/Adjustment Form" and submitting it to the campus Financial Aid Office. The form can be found on our site www.sunysuffolk.edu. Select Financial Aid, next select Printable Forms, and there you will see the "Loan Request/Adjustment Form."

    It can be either a subsidized loan (interest is paid by Department of Education while you are in school) or an unsubsidized loan (interest is added to the loan once the loan is disbursed), or both. If you are awarded both and you want a student loan, you must accept the subsidized loan first as it is in your best interest. Once you receive your award letter you will need to log on to the college web site at www.sunysuffolk.edu and accept or decline the award offer. If you are a first-time borrower you will need to complete an Entrance Interview and sign an electronic Master Promissory Note (E-MPN) at www.studentloans.gov. Once you complete these tasks the college will be notified and your loan request will be sent to the Department of Education for approval.
      www.studentloans.gov

      You can now print your tax return transcript online. Just log on to www.irs.gov and select under "Tools" - Get Transcript of your Tax Records - and follow the directions. If you are unable to print your tax return transcript you can call 1-800-908-9946 to request a copy.

      After applying for financial aid with the FAFSA you will receive an email with a link to your Student Aid Report if you included a valid email address on your application. If you did not include an email address you will receive a paper Student Aid Report (SAR) with the results. If Suffolk County Community College was included on your application, we will receive those results electronically and you will receive an award or a request for additional information within 2 weeks.

      Students who receive a Pell Grant in excess of tuition and fees may utilize a school credit in the campus book store. If a student does not utilize the school credit, a refund will be sent directly to the student. A student can opt out of this credit by notifying the campus Financial Aid Office in writing.
     
      In order for this to happen, the College must receive an electronic approval from the Department of Education. This happens 1-2 weeks after you complete the following steps: 1. Accept your offered loan on the student portal (www.sunysuffolk.edu, MySCCC). 2. First time borrowers at SCCC must complete Loan Entrance Counseling and sign a Master Promissory Note online at www.studentloans.gov. Instructions are available on our website. In addition, you must be: 1. in good academic standing and matriculated. 2. enrolled for at least six credits required in your current degree program. If you would like to check your status you may speak to a Financial Aid representative.
     
      Your awards may change each year due to availability of funds or changes in eligibility criteria, family income, etc.
     
      Yes, your original awards are based upon your projected enrollment. Changes in actual enrollment, including non-attendance or course drops/withdrawals, may reduce or cancel this aid offer. Also, if you drop/withdraw all courses before the 60% point your aid will be pro-rated based on the Return of Title IV calculation. This means that aid that had already been awarded and disbursed to you may need to be returned.
     
      No, the federal government requires students to be enrolled for at least 6 credits in their degree program in order to obtain a student loan.
     
      Yes, you can receive part-time TAP as a disabled student as long as we have sufficient documentation that you are disabled as defined by the Americans with Disabilities Act. For more information, please check with the Special Services Counselor at your home campus.
     
      Each semester, your grades will be reviewed to see if you have met the satisfactory progress standards (see Maintaining Eligibility). If you lose your eligibility as a result of extenuating circumstances, you can appeal the decision through a waiver process. Also, if you totally withdraw during the semester, your aid will be proportionally reduced and funds may be returned to the Department of Education.
      Maintaining Eligibility
     
      Yes, continuing students will receive a renewal reminder email application by the first week in December. Also, you will receive a reminder to file your FAFSA from Suffolk County Community College via email.

You will then be allowed to register and begin classes, but you must complete your immunization requirements within the first 30 days of the semester or you will be suspended from the college.
     
      Basically, you have two choices. You can either get re-immunized or you can ask your doctor to do a titer (i.e., blood test) to determine if you have immunity to measles, mumps, or rubella. If any of your blood titer tests are negative, you must get the appropriate immunizations before you can register for classes.

In such situations, medical clearance from a physician is required before a student may return to campus. For the safety of the campus community, we request that anyone displaying signs or symptoms of a potentially communicable disease remain off campus and seek care from a health practitioner.

If you are placed into developmental courses such as Reading 098 or 099, English 009 or 010, or Math 001, 006 or 007, you will need to complete each class before moving on to the next one. If you are required to take developmental courses in two or more areas (i.e., English, reading, and/or math), you will only be allowed to take up to 14.5 credits each semester.
     
      If you do well, you will place out of developmental courses and be able to take all college-level courses. Students who do extremely well are encouraged to apply to the Honors Program or take some Honors courses.

      No, however, if you receive a text message from the NY-Alert service, in most cases, you will not be charged for the text message.
     
      Yes, however, if you choose not to participate, you will not receive direct notification of an alert from the college.
     
      NY-Alert requires that you include at least a primary e mail address.
     
      No, college internal systems will be used to send alerts to college telephones.

Upon connection, you will be instructed to enter the number where you received the call. The system will verify the number and instruct you to hang up so that the system can call back with the message. Only the latest message will be available for a re-call.
     
      NY-Alert will send messages to every contact option you submitted (email address(es), fax(es), text messaging and telephone numbers you used on a regular basis), based upon contact methods selected by the College for the notice.

    Depending upon the incident, the College may choose to implement all contact methods or only select individual channels.

      No, the federal government requires students to be enrolled for at least 6 credits in their degree program in order to obtain a student loan.
     
      New York State limits TAP funds for undergraduate students. Students may only receive TAP for the equivalent of 8 full time semesters. If you use TAP for the summer at a low-cost school like Suffolk, that will reduce your eligibility when and if you transfer on to complete a four-year degree, where your need for financial aid is often greater. At Suffolk you are entitled to 6 full time semesters of TAP aid.
     
      The first thing to do is talk to your supervisor to see if they need help over the summer and would like you to return. If that is a yes, you can return to that position but first you must have completed the FAFSA. When the information is downloaded to our database, it will be reviewed to determine whether or not you are eligible to work in the summer. If you are eligible, you will receive a letter from us stating that you may begin working. If you haven't heard from us please feel free to come in or call us.
     
      No, unfortunately. Both of those programs have limited funds so we only process awards for the Fall and Spring semesters.
     
      No, financial aid can only be used to pay for books in the bookstore during the Fall and Spring semesters. You will be responsible for paying for your own books and supplies for summer session.
     
      Students who do not meet the federal and/or state academic progress standards will receive a "block" which means they have lost their financial aid eligibility. Often, this block is not posted until after you have been tentatively packaged. You can lose financial aid that was already awarded. In some cases, students may appeal and have the aid reinstated. For details, visit your campus financial aid office.
     
      Form 1098-T is a report of charges for tuition and related expenses and scholarships and related charges received on behalf of a student that can be used to determine if the student qualifies for an income tax credit.
     
      Yes. The college is required to send a copy of this form to the IRS.
     
      Box 2 shows the total amounts billed for qualified tuition and related expenses, less any related refunds or reimbursements made during the calendar year.
     
      No. The form is an informational report to you. You should keep it in your tax file as backup.
     
      It means that the student was enrolled at least half time for at least one academic period.
     
      You must calculate your own tax credit. The college does not provide tax advice. The IRS or a tax advisor can provide assistance.
     
      Students may print as many 1098-T forms as they like using the Web.
     
      Only the student. Federal rules do not allow the college to release information to others.
     
      Box 1 is empty because the college reports amounts billed made in Box 2, rather than payments.
     
      Box 5 shows the total of all scholarships and other payments made, that were processed by the college on the student's behalf during the calendar year.
     
      Box 6 is adjustments made to scholarships or grants for a prior year.

      Tuition charged to attend credited courses at the college.
     
      The college is required to report all funds paid by others on behalf of a student, not just scholarships and grants.

      Generally speaking, credits from Suffolk are accepted for transfer credit at virtually every accredited four-year college in the United States. However, the specific number of transfer credits you receive will depend on many factors, including whether or not you've completed a degree, whether you were enrolled in a transfer program (i.e., AA or AS) or a career program (i.e., AAS), and, perhaps most importantly, the particular college and program you are planning to transfer into. The only way to be certain is to contact the transfer college, review the transfer guide, and request a transfer evaluation of your specific courses or program from Suffolk.

      Absolutely. Completing your degree will usually increase your chances of being accepted to your program of choice at your preferred four-year college. Also, it often means that you will be able to receive credit for satisfying all freshman and sophomore core requirements while maximizing transfer credits in other ways as well. For example, courses with a grade of D will generally be accepted for transfer credit only if they are part of a completed degree program. Finally, completing your degree will give you a sense of closure and accomplishment for your hard work at Suffolk while enhancing your eligibility for job opportunities and transfer scholarships.
