In addition to coordinating general extension and curriculum needs of the Cashiers-Highlands area, this office provides Community Service classes and HealthCare training and workshops for all three counties.
Plus 50 Program
Plus 50 refers to those persons who are becoming a larger portion of American society. Every day, over 10,000 persons turn 50 years old. There are over 78 million people in the USA who were born between 1946 and 1964 and over the next 25 years, the elderly population will increase by 80% due to aging “baby boomers.” Southwestern Community College is exploring what it means to offer educational opportunities in this new environment.
Through this program, SCC conducts single courses, each complete in itself, that focus on an individual’s personal or leisure needs rather than occupational or professional employment. Topics for these non-credit courses include arts and crafts, personal enrichment, dance, language, wellness, patient education, plus many more. Many courses are developed after requests from the community.

Courses are all six week courses and will enable you to earn CEU’s (based on your final exam).
A new section of every course will begin monthly. To review the course description and outlines, and to register for these classes, visit: www.ed2go.com/scc
