Washington State Community College (WSCC) has created a fall mini-semester to help ease the transition from the quarter system to semesters. The fall mini-semester is eight weeks long and runs from mid-October through Dec. 11, offering a variety of courses in either daytime, evening, or online. It's a great opportunity for new and transferring students to still get their college career started in fall 2012.
Students taking part in the fall mini-semester are allowed to enroll in up to two classes plus a Personal Development course (about six to eight credit hours). Advising and pre-registration for students is currently taking place.
"This is an opportune way to pick up a class or two for those who either recently graduated and want a jump on Spring Semester, for those working part-time and want to be more workforce ready, or those full-time workers who want to improve their skills," said Dr. John Tigue, WSCC vice president for academic affairs.
Formal fall mini-semester registration begins Monday, Oct. 1. The fall mini-semester is from Monday, Oct. 15, through Tuesday, Dec. 11. It includes 15 courses in computers, English, health, nutrition, personal development, political science, philosophy, radiology, speech, and industrial technology.
Student interested in registering in the fall mini-semester should make an appointment with Admissions by calling (740) 568-1900.
