    Shelton State Community College will visit all six Tuscaloosa County School System high schools over the next few days, reminding members of the Class of 2022 that all TCSS graduates are automatically accepted to Shelton State. All that is required is a photo ID and the completion of a free entrance process.

    “We’re thankful to Shelton State for raising awareness of this opportunity for high school graduates,” TCSS Superintendent Dr. Keri Johnson said.

    “This is a great way to ensure that all of our graduates have a plan for what’s next after graduation.”

    To go a step further, Dr. Chris Cox, Interim President of Shelton State Community College, reminds any high school graduate that they have automatic acceptance to Shelton State.

    “If you have a high school diploma, you’re in,” Cox said.

    In addition to no application fee, Cox said many Shelton students qualify for federal financial aid, so that some or all tuition and fees are paid. Students may also receive funds to help with other expenses.  

    “We’re excited to partner with our local schools to make sure graduating seniors have a pathway to college,” Cox said.

    Admissions representatives from Shelton will visit Brookwood High School, Hillcrest High School, Holt High School, Northside High School, Sipsey Valley High School, and Tuscaloosa County High School for an Admit Express Day. Once admitted, all students will select their day to meet advisors, register for classes, and tour the College.
