Welcome from Dr. Pittman
On behalf of the trustees, faculty, staff and students, I welcome you to St. Louis Community College. I am honored and excited to serve the St. Louis Region, and to be a part of a time honored educational institution, which has great tradition in providing educational opportunities that lead to the success and prosperity of our students and graduates.
You will discover we offer a very wide variety of programs that prepare you for the workforce and further higher education. To date, the college has over 1.3 million alum who have benefited in a wide variety of ways since meeting their educational objective at STLCC. No matter where I go in the community, I continue to meet highly successful individuals who have either taken classes or graduated from the college.
STLCC offers an incredible value to students at a very low cost. At an in-district rate of approximately $122 per credit hour, you will be amazed how far your dollar will go in providing you with the skills and education needed in today’s complex and demanding workforce. As you will discover, we have comprehensive financial aid packages and scholarships, and, for those students qualifying for Missouri’s A+ Program, this generous scholarship provides eligible individuals with a path to an associate’s degree for very little out-of-pocket cost to the student. Many of our students graduate with very little or no college debt given the great financial aid and low tuition opportunities that exist.
I invite you to meet with a college counselor or academic advisor in the very near future to learn about STLCC and to begin your journey toward a highly rewarding educational experience and career. I look forward to meeting you on one of our campuses, and wish you much success in fulfilling your educational and career objectives!
Jeff L. Pittman, Chancellor
