Henry - 01/27/2022

I truly enjoyed attending Suffolk County Community College. It is the perfect example of what you put in, you'll get out. Professors are fair and available when you need them, and the courses offer challenge but professors truly want you to learn the content taught. I would recommend it to anyone locally graduating high school.

Tatiana - 12/11/2020

Suffolk Is an amazing school. When I first started I was a little scared and worried for what was coming. I was scared of getting lost, being late, etc. Suffolk made me feel comfortable. Your ideas are expressed freely with no judgement at all. Suffolk makes me feel safe and wanted.

It was a nice school, it’s a great way to get a start in your major and take the correct steps towards your future. Suffolk community college is an affordable easy access way to figure out what you want to do and what steps are needed to fulfill all your general need and succeed.

I think it is a great college, I have had great professors this first semester, the campus is clean and safe. The class sizes are really good, they allow for greater communication with your professor which is important. There are many clubs to join and they allow you to get involved on campus. As for academics they are solid, my brother graduated from here and transferred to a university so far he has been doing well. The classes are hard work as they should be. Overall great experience so far.

Suffolk County Community College FAQS

  1. What is the Acceptance Rate at Suffolk County Community College?

    The fall 2020 acceptance rate for Suffolk County Community College is 100%. That means, out of _____ applications received in 2020 , _____ students were offered admission. The number of males who applied was _____ vs the number of females which was _____.

  2. What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

    The one piece of advice that I really wish that I could have given myself was to get my mind in gear and choose a major before the start of college, this way I wouldn't have to take two full semesters and one winter semester of Liberal Arts & General Studies due to the fact that I had no idea of what I wanted to do when I registered for college. Between the loss of my father and getting so many offers to different colleges in a vast amount of states across the country, and with no ideas as to what I wanted to do after High School, I was a bit stressed and therefore lost as to what I wanted to persue later in life. I am glad that I chose the automotive field to base my college studies in because I love my classes, my teachers, and the overall family atmosphere of the staff and the students within the program, as well as the fact that what I am learning now can be applied to everday life. Without transportation, the world wouldnt function, and my future will be a key element in making sure the world funtions efficiently.

  8. What's the one thing you wish someone had told you about freshman year?

    I wish I knew how much I'd enjoy attending school at Suffolk. I transferred out of a previous college to attend Suffolk. I am doing so much better than I was at the other school. It has been a great school to me. I have no complaints and will be graduating shortly. Of course the price of attending Suffolk is cheaper. I feel that I obtain more knowledge than I would if I went anywhere else. I wish Suffolk was my first choice so I didn't have to transfer so soon in my college years.

  13. What's unique about your campus?

    The best thing About SCCC is its professors and class sizes which have been much better than the ones I had back at the first school I went to. The professors here are more like teachers while at my old school they were doing research and teaching on the side and most of them just sent teacher's assistants to teach classes which was frustrating since they couldn't answer so many questions that the professor could. Also the class sizes at the first school were massive while at SCCC they are like a standard class room.
