WINTERVILLE—A new round of late-start classes will get underway today at Pitt Community College, giving those still interested in taking curriculum courses this fall another opportunity to enroll.

Lori Preast, PCC Assistant Vice President of Curriculum and Instruction, says the 12-week classes will run until Dec. 16. Because they are four weeks shorter than classes that began at the start of the semester in August, she says they “require an extra measure of self-motivation and diligence in order to succeed in them.”

Course selection varies from Creative Writing and Quantitative Literacy to Medical Terminology and World Religions. Some are specific to associate degree curricula, while others can be transferred to many of North Carolina’s public and private four-year institutions.

New students must complete a PCC admissions application and submit copies of their official high school transcripts to the Registrar’s Office to enroll in late-start classes. Current students may register from an approved Student Education Plan or by contacting their academic advisors.

More details and a list of late-start classes being offered this fall are available on the PCC website.
