STCC offers extra hours, late registration for spring classes
SPRINGFIELD, Mass. – Springfield Technical Community College will be open until 7 p.m. Monday through Thursday from Jan. 8 through Jan. 18 to serve prospective students planning to register for spring semester classes.
Classes begin Monday, Jan. 22. During this "Late Registration" period, prospective students may apply to a program, meet with an advisor, select and register for courses, pay their bill and receive their schedule in one easy visit.
Dean of Admissions Louisa Davis-Freeman said there is still plenty of time to enroll at STCC for the spring semester, and many programs are still accepting applicants.
"To be accepted into a program please bring your official high school transcript(s) or GED or HiSET certification with you. In order to be considered eligible for financial aid, you must be enrolled in a degree-granting or eligible certificate program,” Davis-Freeman said.
“New for spring semester is our Mechanical Engineering Technology Transfer program partnership with Northeastern University,” Davis-Freeman said. “Our partnership with Northeastern allows students to earn bachelor’s degrees in mechanical engineering technology and advanced manufacturing systems on-site at STCC. The agreement with STCC marks the first time Northeastern has partnered with a community college to offer bachelor’s degrees on-site.”
In addition, STCC’s new online degrees in Business and Business Transfer continue to be a popular option for prospective students looking to complete their associate degree completely online, Davis-Freeman said.
The College will be closed in observance of Martin Luther King Jr. Day on Monday, Jan. 15.
