New Eight-Week Classes Offered this Fall at Wor-Wic
July 27, 2006

Wor-Wic Community College is currently accepting registrations for new eight-week credit classes that are being offered for the first time this fall.

Two eight-week sessions are being offered back-to-back, in addition to the college’s regular 14-week semester. The first eight-week session begins Aug. 19 and ends Oct. 14, and the second 8-week fall session begins Oct. 18 and ends Dec. 18. The regular 14-week fall semester begins Sept. 6 and ends Dec. 16.

Students interested in taking classes offered during the first eight-week session can register now through Aug. 18 in the student services office at the college campus in Salisbury. Hours of operation for the student services office are Monday and Thursday from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. and Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

Three-credit introductory lecture classes in business, chemical dependency counseling, computer studies, early childhood education, English and mathematics are offered one night a week from 5:30 to 10:40 p.m. during the first eight-week session.

“Fundamentals of College Study,” a new course designed to help students increase their chances for academic success, will also be offered as an eight-week class on Thursdays from 6 to 9:15 p.m. Some students are required to take this course during their first semester at the college.

Day and evening classes are offered for emergency medical services students in the new eight-week format.

Associate degrees in chemical dependency counseling, early childhood education and emergency medical services can be completed by taking a combination of the eight-week classes offered in the fall and spring. Certificates of proficiency in general business and supervisory development can also be completed using the new format.
