Good Stuff

"SCTCC has been an amazing experience for me as an online student!  I work full-time, have 4 kids and own a small business, so going back to get my degree was a serious commitment for me. What has made it successful and also enjoyable has been the incredible team of instructors and staff.  They understand how challenging schooling can be and they have supported and encouraged me every step of the way.    

The classes that I have taken and continue to take have aligned perfectly with my current career as a Manager and I have grown not only personally, but also professionally through this whole experience.  Getting a degree later in life can be daunting; but with phenomenal faculty, current and applicable curriculum and resources such as the online program, SCTCC has made my educational journey truly a success and something that I am proud to say that I’m accomplishing.”   

- Polly K., Environmental Services Manager, CentraCare. 

"The Business Management degree I earned at St. Cloud Technical and Community College not only allowed me to achieve my bachelor’s degree with the honor of Summa Cum Laude but it also gave me the confidence to then complete my MBA.  I have used my experience and degree from St. Cloud Technical and Community College to also assist in the formation of a business I started in the St. Cloud community where we assist businesses with their marketing needs by supplying them with digital graphics, banners, window clings, and other marketing materials. 

I would not have achieved any of these accomplishments if it hadn’t been for the dedication, care, and competence of the faculty at SCTCC.
