WINTERVILLE—With a little more than a month to go in the fall semester, PCC is preparing to launch its final round of late-start classes.

The five-week courses run from Nov. 5 to Dec. 14. Though material will be covered at a rapid pace, the classes are a great way for students to complete college coursework in a short timeframe.

“Students considering these courses must be focused, proficient with the online learning process, and have excellent time management skills, because the classes are fast-paced,” says Lori Preast, PCC Assistant Vice President of Academic Affairs.

Though limited in number, the selection of courses is wide-ranging, including classes on sociology, computers, philosophy and music appreciation. All will be offered online due to health safety concerns associated with COVID-19.

No matter the course, though, Preast said PCC offers an array of support services online to help students succeed academically.

Those interested in five-week courses are asked to contact Preast at lpreast@email.pittcc.edu or (252) 493-7700, so she can walk them through the admissions process.
