STCC Cares about YOUR education

Emergency Financial Support

Emergency Financial Aid Grant (COVID-19): As a result of the COVID-19/coronavirus pandemic, STCC has received federal funding to help students.  The Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (“CARES Act”), enables STCC to provide eligible students with grant support to help you cover expenses incurred due to campus disruption related to COVID-19. You may be eligible for funding from STCC through the CARES Act. Students who have completed the spring 2020 semester and meet Title IV eligibility, can submit a request through the STCC COVID-19 Application for Emergency Financial Aid Grants.

Student Emergency Fund: The Student Emergency Fund is designed to assist students who encounter an unexpected, short-term financial emergency that would prevent them from continuing their education. Our goal is to assist students so that they may continue their studies and successfully complete their coursework. Submit a Student Emergency Fund Request. If you have questions, please refer to the Student Emergency Fund Guidelines.


Student Affairs is charged with supporting and participating in the academic mission of the College. As educators, we seek to maintain and enhance a purposeful, open, disciplined, caring, and diverse community. As such, we value integrity, dedication, commitment, honesty, social and civic responsibility, while promoting our students' intellectual, emotional, physical, and spiritual development. We are committed to optimizing student development through excellence in services, programs, and facilities.

As specialists in the field of student development, we serve as student advocates both inside and outside the classroom. We consult and collaborate with faculty, staff, administrators, and campus external governing agencies. Through collaborative research and evaluation, we study our environment, programs, and services and are accountable to our students, the College, our state and our profession for providing a quality educational experience for all students.
