How to Apply

Application Deadline for Spring 2022 – December 1st, 2021

The application link will be provided to school counselors in SPS partnering schools. Interested students should contact their school counselor to discuss eligibility, course options, and obtain the link to submit an application. In addition to the application, applicants must submit their current high school transcript, which should reflect current high school grade and/or graduation year as well as high school GPA. Transcripts can be submitted via email to collegenow@stcc.edu.

Applicants under the age of 18 will need parent/guardian consent on their applications.

Taking Additional Classes

Students continue to have the opportunity to register for courses at STCC through the Registrar’s Office, as a non-degree student if they are ineligible for the College Now program or wish to take additional courses. Please be advised that they will be responsible for paying for any courses they register for as a non-degree student, as well as any additional costs for books, supplies, and fees (if applicable). Should any students be interested in this option, they can complete the Non-Degree Student Application. Non-degree students are not eligible for financial aid.

Transferring College Now Course Credits

If you plan to transfer your College Now credits to another college or university after you graduate from high school or home school it is highly recommended that you speak directly to the transfer college regarding their transfer policies. Most colleges have a minimum grade requirement for transfer courses.

To obtain an official transcript of your College Now course credits you must request an official transcript from the STCC Registrar's Office. You can order your transcript online or by mail.
