Itís Not Too Late to Enroll ó Second Start Courses Available
Published on: January 18, 2012
New and current students have a second chance to take classes this spring at Lone Star College-Montgomery, as ‘Second Start’ courses, an alternative to the regular 16-week semester, begin in late January all the way through early April.
These courses, which last anywhere from three to 14 weeks each, are a convenient alternative for students who are unable to begin the semester in the typical fashion or need flexibility in their class schedule. Plus, students can register for a Second Start course right up to the first day of each class.
More than 40 Second Start classes are offered this spring in 20 different program areas, and evening, online, and hybrid courses are available. 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’s degrees, or university transfer.
This spring, LSC-Montgomery offers Second Start courses in the following program areas:
Computer Information Technology
Physical Therapist Assistant
