Published on: August 24, 2009Everyone deserves a second chance–especially a second chance to start college.
Although the traditional 16-week fall semester at Lone Star College-Montgomery began Monday, August 24, the college offers a wide variety of ‘Second Start’ courses with start dates beginning in late August through November.
Second Start courses range from three to 14 weeks in length, and students can register up to the first day of class. Coursework is completed by mid December or earlier, depending on the individual course length and start date.
Dr. Julie Leidig, vice president of instruction, said Second Start classes are a great opportunity for those who cannot begin the semester in the typical fashion.
“We understand that many people can’t fit in a 16-week course, so these classes provide a convenient alternative,” said Leidig.
A wide selection of Second Start courses is offered this fall, including weekend, evening, and hybrid courses. Hybrid courses replace some of the classroom instruction with media-enhanced online learning, greatly reducing the amount of time spent on campus.
Just like the traditional 16-week courses, Second Start offerings are designed to help students achieve academic goals set toward workforce certificates, an associate degree, or university transfer.
This fall, LSC-Montgomery offers Second Start classes in the following program areas:
Computer Information Technology
Physical Therapist Assistant
