Back by Popular Demand!  If your student is interested in attending Shelton State Community College or has previously been admitted for the fall semester, join us for Virtual Parent Chat.  The Virtual Parent Chat will be hosted monthly on Zoom April through August.  There is no fee to attend.


We will discuss a variety of helpful topics including admission, financial aid, and our updated methods of instruction. We will close the discussion with a question/answer session, and we hope to alleviate any anxiety you or your student may be experiencing ahead of the first day of class.
