WINTERVILLE—Though they move fast and require a good deal of discipline for success, Pitt Community College’s five-week “Spring Fever” courses present a great opportunity to earn college credits in a short timeframe.

According to Lori Preast, PCC Assistant Vice President of Curriculum and Instruction, this year’s “Spring Fever” courses run from April 1 to May 9. She said they will be offered online and students must receive approval to register for them.

“Late-start classes feature the same instruction as courses that began in January, but there’s a considerable difference in having five weeks to learn the information instead of 16,” Preast said. “These courses require an extra measure of self-motivation and vigilance for success, so we want to make certain the students who enroll in them are focused, proficient with online learning and have excellent time management skills.”

Though the selection of “Spring Fever” classes is limited, nearly all can be transferred to North Carolina’s public and private four-year institutions. Due to the accelerated nature of instruction, students can take no more than two in a semester.
