College Now logo

Important Program Update

The College Now program will run in Fall 2021 in continuing partnership with Springfield Public Schools. Eligible students must be active junior or senior status within Springfield Public Schools, and have a minimum GPA of 2.0 in high school. If a student has completed coursework with STCC previously, they must also have a minimum GPA of 2.0 with the college. Students may apply to take one course in the Fall 2021 semester.

The application link will be provided to school counselors in 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 also 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, to be completed via a separate link that will be provided to school counselors as well.

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.

Should you have any questions, please email collegenow@stcc.edu.

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.
