We have two wireless networks for Stanly Community College students and employees to use. You can either use SCC-Guest or SCC-SECURE wireless. The preferred option for most Stanly users will be to use SCC-SECURE wireless network. Communications on the SCC-SECURE network is encrypted and thus provide the user with much better security while using the SCC wireless network.


In order to connect to either wireless network, you will be required to use your Stanly Community College username and password. (This is the same username and password you use to access WebAdvisor, Moodle and your student gmail account.)



How to connect to SCC Secure Wireless


1. To connect to the SCC-SECURE network click on your wireless network icon in the bottom right corner of your screen.
