They recently added a five-week summer session that starts on Monday, June 24, offering more than 100 class sections of high-demand courses such as Public Speaking, English Composition, Precalculus and Chemistry.
Classes will be offered online and at both the Valencia and Canyon Country campuses. Online Registration opened Wednesday. View the class schedule here.
The expanded the 2013 summer schedule — already one of the largest ever offered at COC — was made possible due to restored state funding.
The majority of courses offered are ones that students need to either graduate, transfer to a four-year school or meet prerequisites, providing an opportunity for students to get a jumpstart on their course work before the start of the fall semester in August.
In addition, a number of elective and exploratory courses, which students often use to help determine their educational and career goals, are also included in the schedule.
Summer 2013 enrollment fees at all 112 California Community Colleges are $46 per unit, as mandated by the state of California.
As an added bonus, the first 2,000 students that register for a course during the summer session will receive a free $50 voucher to use at the COC bookstore.
