College Offers Four Summer Sessions, Including Online

College of the Canyons students looking to get ahead this summer will benefit from the college’s extensive summer class schedule, which is divided into four sessions and includes an entire online-only session.

The 2019 summer session includes seats for more than 20,000 students spread across more than 700 sections of high-demand core classes in a wide range of academic subjects and disciplines.

Some of the new courses that will be offered include:

  • Administration of Justice 125 – Criminal Law
  • Automotive Technology 103 – Automotive Electrical Systems
  • Computer Science 122 – Architecture/Assembly Language
  • English 250 – British Literature
  • English 271 – Mythology
  • French 102 – Elementary French 102
  • Construction Technology 103 – Blueprint Reading for Construction
  • Paralegal 180 – Estate Planning
  • Real Estate 105 – Real Estate Financing
  • Surveying 110 – Computer-Aided Drafting for Surveyors

The majority of classes offered will be courses that most students need to either graduate with an associate degree, meet prerequisites for transfer to a four-year school, or gain the skills required to obtain employment in a high-demand field. Summer is an excellent opportunity for incoming students to get a jump-start on their coursework before the start of the fall semester in August.

Students and community members looking to enroll in a summer course are encouraged to attend the college’s one-stop Summer Rush registration and orientation event, scheduled 1 to 6 p.m. Thursday, May 23 at the college’s Canyon Country campus.

During the Summer Rush event, college staff from key student service departments will be available to provide personalized services designed to help students apply, register and enroll. Drop-in counseling and new student advisement workshops will also be available. Students are asked to park in Lot 3 and check in at Quad 1.

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

In addition, a number of elective and exploratory courses — which students often use to help determine their desired educational or career track — will also be offered.

“Summer is a great time for students to take classes that can help them with transferring to a university, job training and advancement or for leisure,” said Omar Torres, associate vice president of academic services. “In addition, students currently enrolled in four-year colleges and universities might also benefit from the numerous classes offered by COC which will enable them to advance in their fields of study. With so many classes, there is one that fits most students’ needs.”

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 first five-week summer session runs June 3 to July 6.
  • A second eight-week session runs June 10 to Aug. 3.
  • The third session, which runs June 17 to July 20, will be held entirely online.
  • A final five-week session will be offered July 8 to Aug. 10.

The summer schedule of classes is now posted online.

High school students in the 11th and 12th grades can begin registering May 21. A final late-registration period for all students begins May 28.

Summer enrollment fees at all California Community Colleges remain at $46 per unit, as mandated by the state of California.
