More about SMC

82%

of graduates continue education

Employers want college grads who are ready to work. SMC’s unique CAMAK CORE gets you ready. Fast.


Finding the right job or career is the #1 reason you’re going to college, yet most colleges don’t prepare you for a job. We offer for-credit career preparation so that you get a well-rounded education PLUS the tools to succeed in the workplace after graduation.

At most colleges, job preparation is something you have to do in your free time. At SMC, it’s an important part of your degree.


Going to school, working AND trying to have a personal life make it impossible to fit in the skills and experiences that make work success happen FAST. SMC’s bachelor’s degree includes six courses that will teach you how to master the world of work, no matter what career path you take.

Liberal Arts

Education

SMC is a career-focused liberal arts college, which means you’ll be exposed to many different subjects during your education with us. This kind of well-rounded education helps you grow by broadening your understanding of the world, and it also makes you a valuable employee. Why? Because you’ll be better at understanding information and solving problems: two of the most important skills in any job or career.






High Quality & Affordable

Since 1911, we’ve been ensuring access to a high-quality and affordable education for students from all economic and religious backgrounds.

SMC IS A GOOD INVESTMENT IN YOUR FUTURE


COLLEGE DEGREE HOLDERS EARN MORE


Employees with a bachelor’s degree can earn as much as $1 million dollars more during their careers than workers with only a high school diploma. College is expensive, but it’s an investment in your future that will pay off. SMC has not raised tuition in five years and offers financial aid packages that make a private education on our small, friendly campus as affordable as many huge public South Carolina colleges.
