STCC to hold virtual Open House
SPRINGFIELD, Mass. – Springfield Technical Community College will hold a virtual Open House Feb. 9 at 4 p.m. to give the public an opportunity to learn about programs and the application process.
High school students, adult learners and their family members can log in to Zoom to learn about what the college has to offer. For information about registering to attend the virtual event, visit stcc.edu/apply/open-house.
STCC representatives will be on hand to discuss the following:
- Associate Degree & Certificate Programs
- Transfer Opportunities
- Financial Aid
- Disability Services
- Online learning
Dean of Admissions Louisa Davis-Freeman said the Open House at STCC is an excellent opportunity to find out about programs, ask questions and speak with college representatives. The Open House at STCC typically is held on campus, but will be offered virtually to keep everyone safe during the COVID-19 pandemic. Responding to safety concerns, STCC offers online classes with a mix of low-density on-campus labs for health, science and technical programs.
"I encourage all prospective students—whether you’re in high school or a returning adult—to log in to Zoom and learn more about STCC,” Davis-Freeman said. “We're affordable and accessible and our career programs will prepare you to join the workforce upon graduation. We also have many transfer programs and our graduates continue their educational journeys at colleges and universities throughout the United States."
STCC is accepting applications for Spring Flex Term 2, which starts March 24. Applying to STCC is free. Anyone with a high school diploma or equivalency will be accepted.
