Suffolk County Community College (SCCC) is a two-year public college sponsored by SUNY and Suffolk County, New York in the USA. The college has four campuses: The main and oldest campus is in Selden, and the other three are in Brentwood, Riverhead and Sayville. Approximately 20,000 students are enrolled at the campuses. There are about four hundred faculty members. The college receives a significant amount of its operating budget from Suffolk County with a relatively small subsidy from the State University of New York. This has allowed the administration and faculty to focus local tax resources directly on this institution. The Suffolk County Legislature has been very supportive of the College with increases to operating budgets nearly meeting the requests of the College. Suffolk County residents therefore pay a substantially lower per-credit tuition rate when compared to other private colleges in the region. It is noteworthy that class sizes are very small for such a large public institution. Faculty contracts and Administration support guarantee that students are always in classes of less than 35 students. All courses are taught by faculty members who are only committed to teaching students. This is different from most large colleges and universities where faculty are heavily judged on their outside research, publications and general stature in their fields as experts. Suffolk County Community College employs faculty that must have a minimum of a Masters degree in their field. Over the past four years, the college has focused on bringing in faculty from many of the best colleges and universities in the country typically at the doctoral level. Students can expect to receive their undergraduate studies from some of the best "teaching faculty" in the country. This is an amazing opportunity to obtain a top education at the lowest cost in Suffolk County. SCCC offers the Associate in Arts (A.A.), Associate in Science (A.S.), and Associate in Applied Science (A.A.S.) degree, as well as a variety of certificate programs. Students may choose from 69 programs of study in the areas of business; communications and the arts; computing; health, community and human services; liberal arts/university parallel; and technical, scientific and engineering studies. It is important to note that students should be wary of taking any programs other than the A.A. or the A.S. if they wish to transfer to a four year college or university. The A.A.S. degrees are considered "terminal degrees". This means that they are considered the final level of the degree and are not designed to be transferred. This can be troublesome and advisors have not always explained this correctly to students, causing students to lose credits when they transfer to other institutions. Each year, Suffolk County Community College prepares graduates to enter the work force in such marketable areas as medical records, physical therapist assistant, paralegal studies, culinary arts, graphic design, computer science, and heating, ventilation, air conditioning, and refrigeration. Other students transfer to four-year colleges and universities to complete their baccalaureate degree. Suffolk graduates have gone on to study at such institutions as Columbia, Harvard, Cornell, New York University, UC Berkeley, Boston University, and the University of Pennsylvania, as well as the State University of New York.
