This fall, Tarrant County College students will have even more options to help them fast-track their college experience and get them walking across the stage.
TCC’s Connect Campus already offers students Weekend College and eLearning, but beginning Sept. 5, students at the Connect Campus will be able to sign up got up to four credit hours through the college’s new monthly sessions.
These sessions are meant to accommodate those who can’t start classes on regular start times, the news release stated, and the monthly sessions will allow students to take more courses throughout the semester.
“By making it possible for our students to register for courses on a monthly basis, we are strengthening our commitment to addressing the needs of non-traditional students through our non-traditional campus,” said Carlos Morales, Ph.D., president of TCC Connect, in the release. “As the only accredited virtual campus in Texas, this is another example of how our online and accelerated education opportunity allows us to intentionally provide TCC students with greater access to education because we understand the flexibility needed by the non-traditional student.”
In total, 17 monthly sessions will be offered in subjects including accounting, computer science, English, government history kinesiology and psychology. All courses will be worth three credit hours, except kinesiology, which is a one-credit hour course.
The two accounting courses are eight-week classes running from Sept. 5 to Oct. 27 and Nov. 6 to Dec. 29. All other courses fall into the following monthly sessions: Sept. 5 to Sept. 29, Oct. 2 to Oct. 27, Nov. 6 to Nov. 30, and Dec. 4. To Dec. 29.
This is hardly TCC’s first attempt to accommodate students with multipole options outside of the traditional. TCC offers 18 fully online programs, an online Wintermester, and more.
According to the release, online enrollment is currently at about 20,000, with as many as 575 students enrolled in TCC’s Weekend College.
