3 Course Flex Block

New for Spring 2020, a new accelerated 3-course block has been designed as an alternative smart start for your college degree!

Who Is This For?

Are you waiting for the fall semester to start your degree? Why wait, when you can start smart in March!

Our Flex Block is ideal for

  • recent high school graduates who didn’t enroll in college classes at the traditional start of the fall or spring semester
  • those who work 2nd or 3rd shift
  • those who are available during "parent’s hours"
  • first-time students who are considering enrolling in the Fall

How Does It Work?

This new Flex Block features three 3-credit courses designed to start you along your path to an associate degree and beyond.

During the Spring 2 Flex period (March 11 to May 6, 2020), students would choose either a 3-Course block from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon or from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.

Are There Other Course Options?

Yes, we want students to have many options. However, the 9-credit Flex Block is specifically designed to meet the requirements of a number of STCC’s associate degree programs and these sections will have additional academic support to ensure new students are successful.

Is Financial Aid Available?

Yes! By enrolling in STCC’s 9-credit Flex Block, you are considered to have three-quarter time status, with many students eligible for both spring and summer financial aid packages.

Instead of waiting to start, you could complete 5 classes before September, with financial aid in place!
