Words RETURN with 2 arrows in a circle.The "Some College, No Degree" initiative at Sussex County Community College (SCCC) is set to transform higher education accessibility for New Jersey residents who have partially completed their college education but did not finish their degree. This innovative program aims to provide the necessary resources and support to empower individuals to return to higher education and complete their degrees or credentials.

Returning to college to earn your associate degree is not just about education; it's about unlocking your earnings potential and seizing new career opportunities. The benefits of completing your degree include higher earnings, expanded career options, and increased job security.

Statistics consistently show that college graduates earn significantly more than those without degrees. Completing an associate degree can lead to greater financial stability and long-term success.

A degree opens doors to a wider range of career paths and professional opportunities, allowing graduates to pursue their passions and achieve their career goals.

Graduates are less likely to experience unemployment, providing a sense of stability and security in today's competitive job market.

The "Some College, No Degree" program offers a range of resources and support to help individuals navigate the process of returning to college and completing their degree. SCCC provides a welcoming environment and personalized assistance to ensure a smooth transition back into higher education.

Students can also use the Free College (CCOG) grant to offset their education. 

Key resources and benefits of the program include:

"Returning to complete your degree can be a transformative journey, and we are committed to supporting every step of that process," said Dr. Cory Homer, Vice President of Student Success at Sussex County Community College. "With the 'Some College, No Degree' program, individuals can unlock their full potential and achieve their academic and career aspirations."
