Eager to put those lazy days during summer break to productive use? With smaller classes offering more one-on-one time with instructors, summer is the perfect time to dive into more than 350 classes being offered at Grossmont and Cuyamaca colleges.
Most classes begin June 8 or 22. Registration begins April 27 and continues through June 7.
Whether it’s to rack up credits toward graduation as quickly as possible or to pick up a high-demand, lower-division class that’s tough to get into at the universities or other colleges, East County’s community colleges provide opportunities and solutions.
Summer session class schedules and information about enrollment at both Grossmont and Cuyamaca colleges are available at www.gcccd.edu/summer2015 .
For the recent high-school grad, summer sessions are a great way to get your feet wet and see what college is all about before the fall rush.
Plus there’s more scheduling flexibility than ever, with both colleges offering six- and eight-week sessions. Additional four-week courses at Grossmont College include those in humanities, communications, cross-cultural studies and exercise science. Both day and evening classes are available to accommodate busy schedules. Online and hybrid courses, or classes that meet online and in person, are also offered.
All classes cost $46 a unit for California residents, or $138 for the average class. Financial aid, online application and registration are available.
“Community colleges offer the best educational bargain around,” said Chancellor Cindy Miles. “The access to quality higher education that these fees provide is second to none.”
A full array of general education classes is offered for students planning to transfer to four-year universities. Courses satisfying GE requirements at state universities are identified in college catalogs posted online.
At Grossmont College, in addition to general education offerings, specialty courses are available in Administration of Justice, cardiovascular technology, culinary arts, nursing and orthopedic technology. For those interested in learning the latest office skills, Grossmont College offers several online Business Office Technology classes, in everything from basic keyboarding to computer programs, such as Microsoft Excel, Access and Word.
At Cuyamaca College, specialty courses include automotive technology, engineering, ornamental horticulture, water/wastewater technology and English as a Second Language.
