Your safety and education are priorities for SCI. Until further notice, we’re offering our classes in a hybrid/online teaching environment.

Making the decision to go back to school is a wise investment in your future. Do not let the price of obtaining your education intimidate you from attending a career training program.
We know you have a lot of questions, and we are prepared to provide a lot of answers. Schedule an appointment to meet with a Financial Aid team member to determine if you are eligible for SCI’s grants or scholarships. Southern Careers Institute tuition assistance is available to those who qualify. At Southern Careers Institute, we have a knowledgeable team of Financial Aid Officers who are dedicated to each student’s education goals.
We are familiar with the financial aid programs available and are trained to match your needs to obtain funding for eligible SCI students. While SCI provides a variety of financial assistance programs and financing options, students may need to supplement their own finances to meet educational costs. Use the Net Price Calculator as a resource to assist you in planning your career preparation.
Students attending career training may receive grants and scholarships, which are awarded based on the individual’s financial need. If additional funding is needed, student loans are available, if qualified. Students who receive funding through grants and scholarships do not have to repay the balance of the award. We encourage and provide resources for our students to find additional scholarships and grants offered by outside organizations. Students taking out loans are required to repay the balance according to the loan agreement. To determine eligibility for loans, grants, and/or scholarships, please contact a Financial Aid team member who will assist you with any questions you may have.

“I made a complete career change when I started my training at Southern Careers Institute. I needed a stable career to continue providing for my growing family. SCI provided me with the medical terminology and know how that I needed to understand and acquire a career in the medical field. SCI taught me that it doesn’t matter where you are in life right now; you always have room to advance and learn.”

“I am extremely grateful for the assistance I received from SCI’s Career Services team. I enjoy where I work and what I do. SCI has helped me succeed in life by getting me the necessary education and by making me a stronger and more confident person.”
“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.”
Annette D. 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.”
Bonnie M Medical Assistant

“Southern Careers Institute totally surpassed my expectations. Once I finished school, the Career Services team helped me find a job. I would tell anyone thinking about starting career training that you have nothing to lose and a lot to gain. I wish I would have started my training sooner.”
