Get Ready For Fall

Posted: Apr 09, 2020

Registration for Fall 2020 classes is going on now. The Office of Student Services is also seeing students by appointment for admissions, advising, financial aid, and disability and testing services. Classes start August 17. To register, you must have a complete admissions file with official transcripts and test scores, as applicable. If you were enrolled in the Spring semester and have not registered, you may enter Summer or Fall courses into Student Planning for approval.

Appointments

Appointment links for each Student Services division are listed below.

Students will be instructed to visit the gym prior to entering the “A” building for a wellness check, where students will be asked to complete a brief survey and have their temperature taken.

At this time, students are not permitted to bring a friend/family member with them to their appointment. If the student needs their parent to assist them with FAFSA, Disability Services, etc., a virtual meeting with the staff member, student, and parent will be initiated.

Walk-Ins

The Office of Student Services will accommodate walk-ins, as staffing and space allows. First, all walk-ins must report to the Gym for a wellness check. The process will be the same as those with appointments for the most part. However, if the office is at capacity, the student will be asked to wait in their vehicle and a staff member will text/call the student when they become available.

RISE placement testing

In order to keep our students and staff safe, and in compliance with temporary changes to RISE placement criteria from NCCCS, Surry Community College has adopted the following temporary placement test policy. This policy will be in effect for the Summer 2020 and Fall 2020 semesters.

  • RISE placement testing has been suspended for the Summer 2020 and Fall 2020 semesters at Surry Community College.
  • All students may now use their high school GPA for placement, regardless of high school graduation date.
  • RISE placement testing is no longer required for students who do not meet placement criteria. Rather, students will be placed into transition math and English courses.
  • For the summer semester, students who did not graduate from a US high school and do not meet alternate Multiple Measures placement criteria have the option to take courses which have no prerequisites. These students will have the option to take the placement test when the college reopens, or may choose to remain in transition courses for the fall semester.

Apply online at www.surry.edu. Then, contact Student Services at (336) 386-3264 or email studentservices@surry.edu to schedule a Guide, Plan, Succeed (GPS) Session with an advisor and register for classes.
