First of Four ‘Blockbuster Summer’ Sessions Starts June 5 

College of the Canyons will feature a “Blockbuster Summer” schedule of courses with four class sessions designed to help students and community members achieve their educational goals.

The summer session will include seats for more than 22,000 students spread across more than 700 sections of high-demand “core” classes in a wide range of academic subjects and disciplines. 

As always, courses will be offered at both the Valencia and Canyon Country campuses, as well as online. 

The majority of class sections offered will be courses that most students need to either graduate or meet prerequisites for transfer to a four-year school. Summer provides an excellent opportunity for incoming students to get a jump start on their coursework 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 or career track, will be offered.

“This year’s summer session is especially diverse with class offerings to fit a variety of student schedules,” said Jerry Buckley, assistant superintendent/vice president of academic affairs. “We are very excited to welcome both new and returning students who utilize College of the Canyons to reach their education goals.”

Also, high school juniors and seniors can take advantage of the robust offerings to earn college and high school credit while taking classes with waived enrollment fees. 
  • The college’s first five-week summer session will run June 5 to July 8.
  • A second summer session will begin June 12 and run until August 5.
  • The third summer session, which runs from June 19 to July 22, will have primarily online courses with a general education focus. 
  • A final five-week summer session will be offered from July 10 to Aug. 12.

Summer session registration begins Monday, April 24. High school students in the 11th and 12th grades can begin registering May 25. A final late-registration period for all students begins May 29. 

Summer 2017 enrollment fees at all California community colleges remain at $46 per unit, as mandated by the state of California.
