Academic Plan


For almost 40 years, SMCC has excelled largely as a transfer institution. As we look to expand our influence, it is essential that we honor our past related to excellence in general education. Additionally, while we hope to serve an increasing number of students for years to come, we recognize that serving our students also means that we guide them on a path that leads to completion. We recognize that completion can be defined as attaining an associate’s degree, transferring to a university, or earning another credential toward some sort of meaningful career.

The academic plan has been developed with these three objectives in mind:
• Maintain general education excellence
• Increase enrollment
• Increase completions
