A Second Chance to Take Classes
Published on: August 29, 2011
Good news! Students still have an opportunity to take classes this fall at Lone Star College-Montgomery through ‘Second Start’ courses, a convenient alternative for students who missed the start of the standard semester or need flexibility in their class schedule.
Although the traditional, 16-week semester began Monday, August 29, Second Start courses are still available, with start dates beginning in September all the way through late October. Plus, students can register for these courses, which last anywhere from three to 14 weeks in length, right up to the first day of each class.
More than 50 Second Start courses are offered this fall in more than 20 program areas, including evening, weekend, online, 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, associate degrees, or university transfer.
This fall, LSC-Montgomery offers Second Start courses in the following program areas:
Computer Information Technology
Emergency Medical Services Professions
Physical Therapist Assistant
