South Texas College, the Valley’s newest higher education institution, was established in 1993. STC is a comprehensive community college offering associate’s degrees and certificates in more than 50 different programs and courses that are transferable to four-year colleges and universities. When its doors opened in 1993, STC only had 1,000 students; today, enrollment has increased to 10,000 students with classes offered in McAllen, Weslaco, Rio Grande City and Roma. The college continues to add programs, facilities and course offerings to meet the needs of the region. All new programs at STC are designed, developed and implemented based on identified workforce needs established through labor market research.
The Partnership for Business and Industrial Training (992-6197) at STC was formed to provide business and industrial customers with alternative solutions to their training needs. The STC partnership program provides educational assistance to business partners by providing a full range of education and training services for their specific needs. The partnership will also locate and complete applications for necessary funding sources. STC’s Division of Continuing Education (956) 928-4442 offers a variety of courses with flexible scheduling in different locations throughout Hidalgo and Starr counties.
