MCALLEN, TX (April 18, 2017) – STC’s Starr County Campus will open at least four new full-fledged workforce programs beginning in fall 2017. Registration for both summer and fall classes is now underway.
Students will now be able to register for Welding, Electrician Technology, Heating, Ventilation and AC (HVAC), Automotive Technology, and Precision Manufacturing Technology (PMT).
“Along with new facilities, highly qualified faculty with academic credentials as well as real occupational experience in these areas will deliver classroom and hands on training to help students compete in their chosen career area,” said STC Starr County Campus Administrator, Dr. Arturo Montiel.
Dr. Montiel has envisioned a campus where students can study occupational areas of high wage and high demand careers while simultaneously earning an associate or bachelor degree for transfer if they wish to continue.
“I’ve seen students graduate from South Texas College and quickly realize that opportunities to enter the workforce or continue in higher education are plentiful,” Dr. Montiel said. “My position as campus administrator allows me to focus on Starr County where the community is active and embraces higher education.”
With 119 degree and certificate program options available at STC, there is something for anyone interested in accomplishing their educational and career goals. In addition to being close to home, STC is also one of the most affordable college’s in the nation.
In addition to registering for the fall semester, students can also receive assistance from the Advising, Counseling and Testing Departments. Financial aid specialists are available to help students fill out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and to assist with any other financial aid questions.
The Cashiers Department will also be open in order to help students setup payment arrangements and consider options such as installment plans and emergency loans.
The Student Services Buildings are located in Building G at the Starr County Campus. Registration is also available 24/7 online via JagNet.
Summer I & III classes begin June 5, Summer II classes begin July 11 and fall classes begin August 28. For more information, please call South Texas College Admissions at 956-488-8181 or visit southtexascollege.edu/register.
