What’s the Next Step if We Are Interested in Registering?

There are basic steps to registering, but the process can feel cumbersome if you don’t pay careful attention to SCC’s dual enrollment website. The best advice is to read everything before beginning the process. The basic steps are:

  1. Look over the list of dual enrollment courses offered at Notre Dame Prep and ascertain which are on your NDP schedule that you want to take. Note course #s and section #s, as well as whether you need pre-requisites. Unfortunately, some courses are only available via certain teachers.

  2. If a new student, click this link, submit your information, and retrieve and write down your MEID #; you will need it later on.

  3. Register as a Scottsdale Community College (SCC) student, either “new” (never before have taken a course), or “Returning” (have taken a SCC course), and sign up for your courses. You will need to acquire an MEID number and a Student ID number to complete registration. A very helpful tutorial greets you after you click one or the other; we highly recommend it. When you’re done, print all (required) forms:

          • Registration Request Summary

          • Designated Official Form

          • Payment Options Page

  4. After selecting classes, students must complete registration process by following instructions on SCC’s site.

  5. Bring 1) your printed registration packet, 2) a photocopy of one of the following: a US birth certificate, Driver License, US Passport, or Residency card if a Permanent Resident, and a check made out to SCC, if you don’t want to pay by credit card or be billed, to SCC rep on campus.

  6. If you need to take a placement test, your registration information won’t be complete until you do so. You can see pre-requisites on the course list, and test at a SCC testing center if necessary.

Once you’re registered, you will be in SCC’s database as a student, and will be able to access official transcripts upon completion of courses. If you have any questions, please contact Deanna Duermit at 480-634-8242.
