You are required to attend orientation prior to registering for classes. For the foreseeable future, Sandhills Community College will only offer orientation sessions online.

How to complete new student orientation and register for classes:

Step 1 – Set up your Sandhills student account (>MySCC>Password management).

Step 2 – Log into Moodle on your assigned orientation date. Click on the Orientation course and follow the instructions to complete the course.

Step 3 – You will be notified once you have access to register for your classes online through self service. If you are having trouble with planning or scheduling classes, you can contact your advisor for assistance. Your advisor information will be located under “plan your degree and schedule your courses,” and click the “advising” tab.


6) Pay for your classes

The cost of attending classes at Sandhills is still one of the best values in education. The North Carolina General Assembly sets tuition rates for in-state and out-of-state residents.
