The summer session for Colorado Northwestern Community College-Craig has started, but people can still sign up for classes that have already started.
The last day for registering classes, which began Monday, is Wednesday. So far, 151 students have enrolled for the summer session. College officials are confident that once the final tally is taken for the entire summer, enrollment will exceed last year's total of 201 students, helped by the new 100 percent tuition buy down now available.
"I hope that the tuition buy down helps," said Mary Morris, coordinator for public information and community education for CNCC-Craig. "We think the tuition by down can help people get into the flow for the whole year after the summer session."
On Thursday, CNCC will hold orientation for students interested the late-starting furniture refinishing/upholstery class. More than a third of the college's classes will be starting late. The classes which start late include some core academic courses, College for Kids/Camp College and a historical community tour. Some classes are available, and others may be added as the summer progresses.
"Anyone interested in what classes are available or registering for them should get a catalog or call the college," Morris said.
