Principles of Excellence
Prior to enrollment, provide students a personalized form covering the total cost of an educational program
A shopping sheet that covers the total cost of your current educational program is available at svcc.edu prior to enrollment. A sample shopping sheet is here. https://www.svcc.edu/students/finaid/consumer/index.html
Additional information about tuition and other estimated costs are found on our Tuition and Fees page of the Business Office and the Cost of Attendance Page of FInancial Assistance.
Provide educational plans for all military and veteran education beneficiaries
Please look at the programs available. https://www.svcc.edu/academics/programs/index.html
They will provide specifics on their degree program. Since your degree program will be specific to YOUR needs and educational outcomes a further degree program will be discussed by you and your advisor.
Do not participate in fraudulent or aggressive recruiting techniques or misrepresentation
Sauk Valley Community College does not pressure any student to attend this institution. In fact, we encourage students to gather information about our school, compare it with others, and make the right decision for themselves.
Provide accommodations for service members and reservists absent due to service requirements
Sauk Valley Community College is mindful of the service obligations to our students who are still serving in the military either through active service, National Guard, or reserve obligation. We encourage all students who are facing a service requirement to contact your academic advisor or academic department. We also encourage students who are facing absence due to military service to see our Military Activation page. https://www.svcc.edu/students/veterans/policies/activation.html
Designate a point of contact for academic and financial advising
Questions regarding education benefits should be directed to the Veterans Service Coordinator (Student Services Center) at 815.835.6315. Questions regarding academic advising, personal, social or career services should be directed to the Veteran's Representative at 815.835.6390 (Student Services Center).
