MCALLEN, TX (July 12, 2017) – July is the last month South Texas College will be offering a free GED program created to ensure students have the best chance possible to earn their diploma for a better future.

As a result of a grant given by the Texas Workforce Commission, students have the opportunity to receive their GED while also receiving support in the form of a gasoline stipend and materials for school.

Students interested in training for a career in Welding, Business Management, Accounting or Medical Office Specialist but who are missing a GED are encouraged to come to South Texas College and begin the process for a better future.

“It’s our last month offering this free GED program,” said Steven P. Gallegos, Community Outreach and recruiter with STC Continuing Professional and Workforce Education (CPWE). “After this month, we won’t be offering everything we are offering right now including FREE gas allowance, GED courses, and testing fees as well as a chance to win a backpack loaded with cool STC gear. After July, we will have already filled all the spots available.”
