WINTERVILLE—The new academic year at Pitt Community College is off to a great start despite the coronavirus pandemic, and opportunities abound for individuals still interested in taking courses this fall.

According to Lori Preast, PCC Assistant Vice President of Academic Affairs, Pitt has a number of late-start courses of varying lengths available this semester. She said 14-week classes begin Aug. 31, 12-week courses on Sept. 15, and eight-week options on Oct. 13. All classes conclude Dec. 14.

Preast said the selection of courses is wide-ranging. Some, like Medical Terminology and Introduction to Refrigeration, are specific to associate degree curricula, while others are part of a statewide agreement that guides transfer between North Carolina’s community colleges and many of its four-year institutions. Nearly all of the courses will be taught entirely online, due to health safety concerns associated with COVID-19.

More details and a list of late-start classes PCC is offering this fall can be found on the college’s website.
