(FORT BEND) – To alleviate the stress that comes with college applications and registration, Texas State Technical College will host a registration rally Thursday, June 15, at the TSTC Industrial Technology Center in Rosenberg.
TSTC’s registration rallies give new and returning students the opportunity to receive the resources they need to complete the application and registration processes all under one roof.
This initiative was started by TSTC in Fall 2016. All 10 campuses statewide host this event with hundreds of students taking advantage of the assistance offered by faculty, staff and student volunteers.
TSTC Director of Recruitment Dora Colvin calls this event a one-stop shop for students.
“We want to help students by providing the resources they need to finish the application and registration processes for the next semester in one centralized location,” she said.
Enrollment representatives from Admissions, Financial Aid, Advisement, Support Services and Testing will be on hand to guide those attending the event. Tours of the college will also be available throughout the day.
“We hope that having faculty and staff present will help make this process easier for students,” said Colvin.
Student Recruitment Coordinator Marigold Sagrado added that this event also helps her team encourage students to register early.
“The earlier a student registers, the more likely it is they get the classes they need and will be happy with their schedule,” said Sagrado. “They will also have the opportunity to meet their instructors and get book lists early. After this event they (students) will officially be ready for the fall semester.”
To complete the registration process, students must complete an admissions application and bring their GED scores (if applicable), recent high school or college transcripts, and proof of their bacterial meningitis vaccination if under 22 years of age.
New and current students at TSTC’s Fort Bend County campus also have four new programs to look forward to this fall with the opening of TSTC’s newest building, the Brazos Center: Electrical Lineworker Technology, Robotics/Industrial Automation Technology, Electrical Power and Controls Technology and Environmental Technology – Compliance Specialization.
TSTC’s registration rally will be from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. at the TSTC Industrial Technology Center located at 26706 Southwest Freeway in Rosenberg, Texas. Parents are welcome to attend. There will be two more registration rallies later this summer on July 20 and August 10.
Fall registration ends August 21, and the first day of classes is August 28.
