New parking and shuttle options begin fall 2018 for students needing to get to class on time

In an effort to assist students who may have limited funds after paying tuition and other expenses, South Texas College (STC) has removed its parking permit requirement at its Park and Ride facility during operating hours.

The Park and Ride lot is located at 4100 Pecan Blvd., west of the Sonic Drive-In, and has over 600 parking spaces available for students, Monday through Thursday 7 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Students will still be required to have a permit for all other parking lots on campus. The Park and Ride facility is only available at STC’s Pecan Campus.

To accommodate the distance from the main campus, which is about one-half mile, the college has set up a shuttle service free of charge for students and employees getting to class.

South Texas College also utilizes its mobile app “JagMobile” available on iOS and Android enabled devices where students can view the location of buses en-route via Double Map.

The final payment deadline for fall 2018 is Sept. 12. Student attendance is paramount to academic success. Regular attendance in class and laboratories is expected of all students, and STC policy says faculty may drop students, prior to a withdrawal deadline when, in the opinion of the faculty, the student would have difficulty in successfully completing the course.
