Attention Parents

Consider this...

Choosing a college or university is one of the biggest decisions that your maturing child will face. As a parent, there are a few things you can do to ease this decision process and help your child find the institution of higher learning that is right for them.

Save Money on Tuition

The cost of attending public and private universities has been rising steadily the last few years, leaving many with a large amount of debt to pay off after graduation. One solution would be to attend a community college to save on tuition for the first couple years. This can dramatically reduce the amount to student loans to pay for classes. You can view our tuition and fees here.

Complete the Basics

Most core curriculum courses in the State of Texas are transferrable to any public college and university. This means that the core courses taken at South Texas College will transfer to any Texas public institution. View our Transferable Courses at

Time to Decide on a Major

Many high school graduates haven't yet picked a career path. When starting out at college, it’s important explore the possibilities while classes are cheaper.

Living Close to Home

One money-saving solution is to live at home and commute to school. While not all college students live at home, you can save thousands of dollars in the long run. Costs for Room & Board are a large part of student debt, which can account for almost half of expenses.
