St. Charles Community College will host RegFest 2 from 3-8 p.m. Friday, July 12. SCC RegFest is an afternoon and evening full of food, prizes, music and educational planning. The college held its first-ever RegFest in June.
Future students of all ages can learn what degree programs SCC offers, meet with financial aid and A+ Program advisors to discuss eligibility and benefits, become familiar with the process for getting enrolled, gain insight from current and former students and take all the steps necessary to get enrolled. A drawing will be held in which as many as three student participants will take home a $1,000 scholarship to SCC for use in the Fall 2013 semester.
“For those who haven’t yet enrolled for fall classes - don’t worry there is still time,” said Kathy Brockgreitens-Gober, dean of enrollment services. “We are hosting RegFest to help.”
Students can meet with enrollment advisors, complete any necessary assessment tests and learn about the options for the fall semester. The event is a one-stop-shop for recent high school grads and their parents as well as for busy adults considering going back to college.
Those attending should bring a photo ID, ACT scores (if taken in the last two years) and submit a FAFSA online at www.fafsa.gov.
The event will also include interactive tours in addition to music, food, games and prizes. Scooter McCougar, SCC’s mascot, will be handing out free Cougar swag along with free food and information about SCC student life. There will be information about Cougar athletics, SCC’s student clubs and organizations, veteran services and mental health services.
Check-in will be at tables set up between the Student Center and Administration Building on the SCC campus, 4601 Mid Rivers Mall Drive in Cottleville. Visitors should enter campus from the South Entrance along Cottleville Parkway.
Immediately following RegFest, guests can head to the lawn near the Technology Building for food trucks and the free Outdoor Summer Movie Series showing of Rise of the Guardians.
