South Piedmont To Offer Classes in Waxhaw

Meet faculty and staff at First Friday

MONROE – The Waxhaw Business Association, with support of the Town of Waxhaw, is working closely with SPCC to bring higher education to Waxhaw. Faculty and staff from South Piedmont Community College will join the First Friday festivities in Waxhaw on August 2, 2013, from 5:00-9:00 pm. They will promote classes, programs, and educational services to be offered in Waxhaw starting this Fall. The SPCC team will be stationed at the Waxhaw Community Meeting Room, 209 West South Main Street, beside the David Barnes Park.

"We’re bringing NC Career and College Promise to high school juniors and seniors, providing tutoring for writing and math, and offering classes that put people on a degree path," said Dr. Stanley Sidor, President of South Piedmont Community College. "The College has a wonderful array of courses and programs that appeal to young adults and adults wanting college transfer education, career education, and lifelong-learning. This Fall, we are bringing instruction to Waxhaw."

The College is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges to award associate degrees, diplomas, and certificates. Courses earned with an Associate in Arts degree (AA), an Associate in Science degree (AS) or an Associate of Fine Arts degree (AFA) are transferable via articulation agreements to the 16 public universities in North Carolina and many private universities.

Enrollment Services staff will be available during the First Friday event to assist those interested in taking classes through South Piedmont Community College. Prospective students will have the opportunity to complete admissions applications, take or schedule placement testing, and meet with advisors to discuss their career paths.

"At First Friday, we will walk people through the admissions and enrollment steps," said Sidor. "We also anticipate that the interest will be keen and grow to encompass college preparation and a variety of other educational opportunities. We anticipate these educational opportunities to include SAT and ACT prep, children and youth after-school and summer camps, and Senior Adults programming. We are very excited to bring new educational opportunities to Waxhaw, and extend our reach beyond Monroe, Polkton and Wadesboro."
