Registration is now open at the Colorado Northwestern Community College Craig campus for students and prospective students interested in taking classes this summer.
The summer courses are five to eight weeks in length, and classes begin June 3, although in Craig there are some courses that start on May 28. Registration ends May 20.
CNCC offers "core" classes, which earn students credits that will fulfill the general education requirements in the lower division in any four-year degree offered by Colorado public institutions.
"We offer 34 hours of core classes that are guaranteed to transfer to any of the schools in the Colorado public education institutions," said Mary Morris, community education coordinator for CNCC-Craig. "We have introductory level courses in speech, English, literature, algebra, music appreciation and computer studies.
"For someone beginning college or retaking a course, we offer a very high value there's no tuition for (Moffat County) residents."
CNCC-Craig initiated a tuition buy-down program last year, which offers residents the opportunity to take classes and only pay registration fees and class expenses textbooks and supplies.
By retaking a course, students can build a better foundation for their education and replace an unsatisfactory grade, Morris said.
Summer courses are more compacted, so attendance is one of the prime keys of success, Morris said.
"The summer semester classes are intensive, with usually only six or eight weeks, so students need to be there as much as they can," she said. "There are several choices for times for the core classes, with both evening and daytime sections."
Courses for the mine training and full-time nail technician program and a golf class are also available this summer, along with an art retreat and a yoga retreat. College for Kids, a program aimed at children 10 years old or younger, will have its fist session in late June.
