WINTERVILLE—Though the 2024 Spring Semester is underway at Pitt Community College, enrollment opportunities are still available for those interested in late-start classes.

According to Lori Preast, PCC Assistant Vice President of Curriculum and Instruction, late-start classes offer the same instruction as courses that began Jan. 5 but in a tighter window. As a result, she said, they “require an extra measure of self-motivation and diligence” for students to be successful.

The selection of late-start classes is wide-ranging, everything from “Ceramics” and “Acting for the Camera” to “American History” and “General Psychology.” While some are specific to associate degree curricula, others can be transferred to many of North Carolina’s public and private four-year institutions.

Preast said Pitt’s 14-week courses start Jan. 22. She said 12-week classes start Feb. 5, and eight-week courses begin March 1. All classes run through May 6.

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