Quote from the President
“Springfield Technical Community College (STCC) has a long tradition of preparing students for both employment and transfer to baccalaureate institutions. Our career programs in health, technology and business are nationally recognized. We have transfer programs not only in liberal arts but also in nursing, allied health, engineering, management, computer science and technology. Through STCC, students launch their careers, either immediately or after the completion of a four-year degree.”
