CFCC adds hundreds of new mini-classes to fall semester

September 12th, 2014 by admin

College students and local residents who missed out on registering for classes at Cape Fear Community College have another chance to enroll in the fall semester. CFCC has just added hundreds of additional mini-classes to the fall schedule.

Many of these additional classes are in subjects that were in high demand and were full at the beginning of the semester. College officials say that by adding additional classes mid-semester, students can now add a class that might have been unavailable a few weeks ago. The overall goal of the additional courses is to help students graduate or transfer as quickly as possible.

“Mini-courses have become a popular option for students who want to finish their studies as soon as possible, whether it’s to transfer to a four-year college or university or earn a professional degree or certification so they can start a new career,” said Dr. Amanda Lee, CFCC’s vice president of instructional services.

Lee explained that many of the mini-courses are online, so that students won’t need to work around an existing work or busy family schedule.

Each course in the mini-semester is designed on an accelerated schedule, so that students still earn the same amount of credit as a full semester course.

The courses are not limited to currently enrolled students, new students are eligible to register as well. The deadline to register is Monday, Oct. 13. Mini-session courses start on Oct. 14.
