WSCC Intersession Offered Completely Online
Five-week classes offer busy students credit hour opportunities
Washington State Community College (WSCC) offers another innovative way for students to complete his or her degree – for the first time, the 2012 Winter Intersession will be offered completely online. Online classes benefit busy WSCC and other students working around their personal schedules, which is especially helpful during the bustle of the holiday season.
A shortened semester comprised of five weeks, Winter Intersession includes eleven courses in subject areas such as biology, computer technology, business, English, health, speech and more. Winter Intersession begins December 12 and runs through January 11.
With courses available in a variety of subjects, the Winter Intersession is a great opportunity for current WSCC students who need to catch up in their degree program's credit hour requirements to graduate on-time. Additionally, current four-year university students coming home for the holidays can take one or two affordable courses through WSCC's Intersession, then transfer the credit back to their university or college.
According to Director of Distance Learning Dr. Ziad Akir, this is the first time Washington State Community College has offered all courses online during its Winter Intersession.
"This year, we decided to hold all the Intersession courses online so students won't have to travel to campus," says Akir. "This provides the convenience of completing a course in a short period of time as well as still fitting in with your personal schedule around the holidays."
Registration for the 2012 Winter Intersession, as well as 2013 Spring Semester, is happening now. Students can either register online through their WSCC WebAdvisor account, or call 740.374.8716 to schedule an appointment with an advisor to register.
