Admissions Requirements

Prior to the student’s start date, the student must:

Visit the school and tour the campus (if enrolling in a program that will have on-campus classes); and

Complete an interview with a licensed representative in the Admissions Department.

To be considered for acceptance, potential students must:

  •  Be at least 16 years of age. Any applicant who has not reached the age of 18 at the time of the admissions process must provide proof of a high school diploma or GED and have written permission from a parent or legal guardian (by virtue of co-signing the enrollment agreement).

  • Provide SCI with verifiable official documentation of completion of secondary education within 21 days of starting school (see program exceptions below in Programmatic Requirements). Acceptable documentation includes:

    • Official high school transcripts, original diploma, or a verifiable General Educational Development (GED) certificate. Homeschool documentation may also be accepted.

    • A verifiable original diploma document or official transcript indicating completion of an associate degree. The institution granting the degree must have been accredited by an agency recognized by the US Dept of Education at the time the degree was granted.

    • Foreign Credentials that must be evaluated for equivalency to a United States HS diploma. The credential must be an original document sent directly to the campus. The evaluation must be performed by an organization with membership in NACES (National Association of Credential Evaluation Services) OR listed on the Texas Education Agency website under Foreign Credential Evaluation Services.

  • Prospective students must provide criminal history information. Any prospective student who has a convicted or pending felony violent crime, who has a convicted or pending felony drug crime of a serious nature (i.e., drug trafficking), who is a registered sex offender, and/or who has any sex offense convictions of any degree, or a pending felony sexual case is not eligible for enrollment in any program. SCI reserves the right to conduct criminal background checks on applicants or active students, notwithstanding programmatic requirements.

  • (Grandfathered Students): Students without a high school diploma or its recognized equivalent, who were enrolled in an eligible program at a Title IV institution prior to July 1, 2012, are eligible for Title IV aid under the previous ATB alternatives. (Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2012 amended section 484(d) of the Higher Education Act.) Southern Careers Institute accepts these grandfathered students if the student can provide proof that an appropriate ATB process was followed; that the student withdrew after earning credits; and that the student received federal aid for those credits.

“Once I graduated from SCI, I had a sense of accomplishment that helped me through the job search process. SCI provided me with the opportunity to brush up on my skills, extend my accounting knowledge, and they boosted my self-confidence. I went to work two days after my last day of school.”

Business Accounting

“When my youngest child graduated from high school, I told my husband that it was my time. I went back to school to change careers after spending 37 years in the business field. At SCI, the instructors are professional, and they care about what they are teaching you, as well as expect you to give 100% in return. I had problems understanding how to draw in syringes and give injections. I requested extra help from a knowledgeable instructor, and I was able to receive one-on-one training. Today, I draw injections for approximately 100 patients each week. I am very confident in what I’ve learned. SCI has given me the chance to do what I always wanted to do. Thank you for my education. I am doing wonderful.”
