Southeast Kentucky Community & Technical College, a higher education groundbreaker in the region since 1960, is offering a variety of course work. Although the 2015 fall semester has begun, prospective students still have a chance to enroll for classes being offered during the remainder of the term.
According to Elijah Buell Jr., SKCTC’s chief academic officer, both eight- and 12-week sessions are being offered, featuring a variety of “challenging and exciting” classes available online via Kentucky Virtual Campus or KYVC.
“We are happy to be offering a variety of general education courses as well as some classes related to technical programs. It’s a good opportunity for those who did not get enrolled for the regular fall semester. Southeast has a long history of being accessible and insightful to the needs of students,” he said.
Enrollment for the 12-week KYVC schedule is under way until the official start of the term on Sept. 14. Courses being offered include sociology 152, sociology 249 and sociology 260 as well as statistics 210.
Buell noted that a bi-term, extending eight weeks, features courses in biology, business, communications, computer and information technology, criminal justice, education, history, human services, political science, psychology, religion and sociology. The term is schedule to begin Oct. 12 and finish Dec. 13. “It’s a great opportunity to pick up a class or several,” said Buell.
To enroll for either the 12-week curriculum or the bi-term session, potential students may register at any of the SKCTC five campuses, located in Cumberland, Harlan, Whitesburg, Middlesboro and Pineville or at www.southeast.kctcs.edu.
