Effective August 1 2017, the Southern Technical College campus located in Mount Dora, Florida will no longer accept new students. The campus plans to close in July 2018.
Southern Technical College Mount Dora is part of the Southern Technical College group that has eight campuses in central and southwest Florida. Located at 2799 W. Old US Highway 441, the campus has served the Mount Dora/ Lake County community since 2009 by offering diplomas and degrees in programs such as Medical Assisting and Heating and Air Conditioning Technology.
A decrease in student enrollment is the primary reason for the College closing. A healthy job market, combined with a difficult regulatory environment, have caused the College’s student census to decline over the past three years.
Southern Technical College endeavors to fulfill its commitments to all of its students, including those at the Mount Dora campus. All students currently enrolled at Mount Dora will have the opportunity to complete their training as scheduled. Full student services, including graduate placement assistance will continue to be provided to all students as outlined in the college catalog. Student records for the Mount Dora Campus students will be maintained by the Southern Technical College Main Office in Orlando.
In the future, residents in the Mount Dora/ Lake County area interested in enrolling at Southern Technical College should contact the Sanford or Orlando campuses.
