The Admissions Office must receive appropriate identification to complete the admission process. Click here for guidelines for submitting appropriate identification documents.  Within a week or two, you will receive your admission packet in the mail containing your A number (student number) and your student email address. Please check your student email for any notifications regarding your application. Your student email  account will be available by entering your email address and password.  If you have problems accessing your student email, please email support@suscc.edu and tell them you cannot log in to email and provide your name, email, A number, and birthday. 

Provide the following official documents to the Admissions Office:

  • Official High school transcript indicating graduation date or Official GED scores
  • ACT or SAT scores, if taken within 3 years.
  • Official college transcripts if dual/accelerated college credit earned while in high school.
  • To apply for federal financial aid visit www.fafsa.ed.gov. Final approval for financial aid may take up to 6-8 weeks for processing once all documentation has been received by the school. Final processing of financial aid at Southern Union cannot occur until steps 1-5 have been completed.  Be sure to check your student email in case additional information is needed from you to finalize financial aid processing.
  • Students who do not receive financial aid will be required to pay tuition at the time of registration. Payments can be made by credit or debit card through the  mySUSCC portal. Choose the Student Tab > Student Account > Touchnet Bill+Payments, and log in using your "A" number and mySUSCC password. For detailed, step-by-step directions, check out this How to Pay Tuition and Fees PDF.  
  • Students will be dropped for non-payment before classes begin for the semester. Tuition payments should be made prior to that date.  For the Tuition & Fees Schedule and refund information, visit the Tuition & Fees page.
