Check out these reminders and tips because we want YOU to get off to the right start!
Your SFCC Team
√ Enroll in classes on time.
Enrollment closes for 16- and first 8-week classes at 11:59 p.m. Jan. 9. If you have questions about enrolling, contact your navigator or set an appointment in Starfish to meet with him or her.
Enrollment for 12-week classes closes at 11:59 p.m. Jan. 24, and enrollment for second 8-week classes closes at 11:59 p.m. March 20. See Academic Dates and Deadlines.
√ Pay your bill.
You have until 11:59 p.m. Jan. 14 to pay in full (by financial aid, personal payment or combination thereof); have financial aid completed with sufficient aid to pay account balance in full; or enroll in a payment plan.
If your account has a balance greater than $0 after the fees due date, you will have a hold placed on your account. This means you cannot make schedule changes, enroll in future terms or receive a transcript. Students who choose to enroll in a payment plan will not be able to receive a transcript until all payments for current semester have been received and account balance is zero. For more information, visit how to pay your bill.
√ Check your financial aid.
Go to mySFCC Finance Aid page to check for red flags. Once all red flags have changed to green check marks, your FAFSA application process is complete! You will then be able to see your financial aid offer package. The mySFCC Financial Aid page also has information about scholarships, applying for student loans and other money management tools.
√ Purchase your textbooks
Order your textbooks and course supplies at www.sfccbooks.com. You can choose to have your books shipped directly to your door or you can choose In-store pick-up!
It is strongly recommended to order online between Dec. 22 and Jan. 2. Use promo code FREESHIP for free shipping during this time. Orders will be shipped the first week of January, or you can opt for in-store pick up:
Jan. 3-7 – Store hours are 8:30 a.m. to 6 p.m.

√ Go to all your classes, get connected and have FUN!
Going to classes, whether on-ground or online, is necessary to be successful in college. Check mySFCC announcements and student email often so you know what is going on!
√ Add or drop classes.
The last day to add 16-week and first 8-week classes is JAN. 9. The last day to drop and receive 100 percent refund for 16- and first 8-week classes is JAN. 14. No refunds are issued after this date.
You cannot drop a course by simply notifying the instructor or by no longer attending. All hours from course drops will count as attempted hours for course repeats, determining eligibility to continue enrollment, determining eligibility to receive financial aid and scholarships, determining residence hall eligibility and determining athletic eligibility. It is your responsibility to notify the instructor and follow the process if you want to drop your classes. Click Add or Drop for more information.
Students cannot drop their last class or withdraw from all classes online through mySFCC. The link to the Student Withdrawal Form is located in mySFCC > Enroll > Enrollment Tools > Add or drop classes.
√ Roadrunner Ready – SFCC Online Orientation
Orientation is a great tool for students who are new to SFCC as well as current students. Students who take advantage of Roadrunner Ready are more successful in their classes, and they learn about financial aid and scholarships, textbooks, campus resources, SFCC academic technology, and more.
To access the course, go to mySFCC Home page and click the Canvas icon in Applications and Tools. It is available 24/7, so take it anytime. Of course, we highly recommend completing the course before the semester begins!
Need more information? Call (660) 530-5831 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. On-ground orientation sessions will not be held.
√ Apply for graduation
Are you close to completing your certification or degree? To apply for graduation go to mySFCC > Academics > I Need To … and click Apply for Graduation.
√ Update your address and phone numbers.
Keep this information current to ensure financial aid information, checks and important notices, including SFCC Alerts, reach you. At any time, go to mySFCC > Home> Personal Information, and select Update Contact and Emergency Information to make changes.
√ Get connected and stay connected!
Read mySFCC Campus and Personal announcements and your SFCC student email. We correspond with you through SFCC email, so check it regularly. Important information is posted daily about events, news and reminders. You can get your SFCC email on your Smart phone or other mobile devices. Go to ITS Knowledge Base to learn how to do this!
√ Get your BLUECARD
You can now generate your own electronic student ID (BLUECARD) using the TouchNet OneCard app.
Go to the app store on your mobile device and search for TouchNet OneCard and install it. If you are not able to locate the app by searching for it, your phone may not be compatible with the app. This means you will need to request a physical card.
The first time you open the app, select “Not my school” at the bottom of the screen, search for and select State Fair Community College. You will be redirected to SFCC login where you will work through Multi Factor Authentication (use your same SFCC login and password information that you use to log in to mySFCC).
If you already have a BLUECARD, you will see your electronic ID card in the app. You can use it everywhere you use your card now.
If you don’t have a BLUECARD, you can start the process in the TouchNet OneCard app.
Click on the menu icon in the upper right corner (three, short horizontal lines),and select Update or Submit Photo. The app allows you to take a picture or choose one from your photo library. Please follow these guidelines for your picture:
- Make sure the photo presents the full head from the top of the hair to the bottom of the chin.
- Center your head within the frame.
- You should have a neutral expression and face the camera.
- Only one subject should be in the frame.
Once submitted, your photo will be reviewed and further information will be sent in your SFCC email. When your photo is approved, you will find your electronic BLUECARD in the TouchNet OneCard App.
If you are unable to download the app to your phone to create your electronic ID, you can pick up your physical BLUECARD in Student Services, Hopkins Student Center, Room 750, on the Sedalia campus during regular office hours.
If you need a physical ID card but attend an extended campus, you should contact the extended campus director or navigator. The extended campus staff will contact the Sedalia campus to print your BLUECARD and send it to the extended campus site.
Questions or need a physical card? Visit BLUECARD FAQs webpage or contact Student Services at 660-530-5830.
