Summer Session to Provide Class Seats for 18,000-Plus Students
This summer, students at College of the Canyons will have access to more class sections and educational opportunities than ever before, thanks in large part to restored funding levels brought on by the passage of Prop. 30 last November.
The 2013 summer session will include more than 580 class sections of high-demand “core” classes representing a wide range of academic subjects and disciplines.
In all, the 2013 summer schedule of classes represents a roughly 23 percent increase from summer 2012, and will provide seats for more than 18,000 students.
The majority of class sections will be made up of courses that most students need to either graduate, transfer to a four-year school and/or meet prerequisites, providing an excellent opportunity for students to get a jump start 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 desired educational/career track -- have also been included in the 2013 summer schedule.
The college’s first five-week summer session will run June 3 to July 5. A second eight-week session runs June 10 to Aug. 9, and the final five-week session will run July 8 to Aug. 16.
The schedule of classes is now posted online at www.canyons.edu. A printed schedule will not be offered to students.
Summer session registration for new students will begin Monday, May 20. A registration period for high schools students (11th and 12th grades) will begin Thursday, May 23, with a final late registration period scheduled to begin Tuesday, May 28.
Despite the increased number of class sections being offered this summer, students are still encouraged not to wait until the last minute to apply to the college and/or register for summer session, as classes at COC are expected to fill very quickly.
Summer 2013 enrollment fees at all 112 California Community Colleges will remain at $46-per-unit, as mandated by the state of California.
