Not only does South Texas College offer more than 90 degree and certificate program options in more than 40 subject areas, we also provide great opportunities for you to improve your student life, reach your goals and achieve your dreams.
One reason that students love our college is the student-instructor ratio, with typical class sizes between 15-18 students. Students can get the one-on-one attention they need to master the subject area. Additionally, most instructors are available to students for one-on-one tutoring and mentorship. This is the unusual opportunity that we provide to ease student transition into higher learning and ensure student success.
Our campus is very busy at any time of the year because of the many extracurricular activities available to students and the community. We have several clubs, intramural sports competitions, leadership academies and free concerts by nationally recognized bands. From our Folklorico Dance Troupe to our drama and art club W.I.L.D. to our Opera Club to our Digital Photography Club, there is something for everyone at STC.
Course schedules are very flexible, with classes being offered at night, on weekends and via the Internet. We understand the pressure facing students so we provide a variety of options to make attending classes as easy as possible. We also offer three options for summer courses so that students can continue working toward their goals all year long.
Just like at any other institution of higher learning, STC offers opportunities for discourse with top-notch thought leaders. We bring a variety of guest speakers to campus throughout the year to lecture on topics relevant and important to society. Also, not to be overlooked are the faculty. They are among premier researchers in their fields.
Students also have free access to cutting-edge computer technology and premier library collections. Others in the community are also welcome to use these tools and benefit from them whenever possible.
We also know that students need access to consultants in a variety of areas so we offer job placement assistance, tutoring in core subject areas, personal counseling, academic counseling, as well a variety of services for the disabled just to name a few of the free services we offer to help you achieve your dreams.
Whether you are a first-time college student or have been away from the college scene for a while, STC can make help you make your college life a success!
