Conroe-area students wanting to take a “full load” of academic credit classes this fall won’t have to travel far to do so. Montgomery College’s Conroe Center has packaged a “quartet” of classes that are extremely popular with students desiring to transfer to a four-year university.
“We’ve typically offered several credit classes at the Lone Star College–Conroe Center each semester, in addition to a variety of career-oriented programs,” said Dr. Julie Leidig, vice president of instruction at Montgomery College. “However, this is designed as a cohort opportunity for students. They can sign up for all four classes to create a convenient semester—without having to travel south to the main campus.”
The Lone Star College–Conroe Center is located at 102 Longview Street, just east of downtown Conroe off Highway 105—just past the FM 1314 intersection.
“We know that our students value convenience,” added Dr. Leidig. “For many who live on the north end of our service area, the Conroe Center is a great place to get started or continue making progress toward their academic goal.”
Face-to-face courses included in the Conroe Center “cohort” include English 1301 (Composition & Rhetoric), Math 1314 (College Algebra), Psychology 2301 (General Psychology) and Government 2301 (American Government I). Rounding out the cohort are several online sections of ITSC 1401 (Introduction to Computers) that can be taken from the convenience of home.
Most of the face-to-face courses are offered on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Students can start with Government from 10-11:20 a.m., followed by Psychology from 11:30-12:50 p.m., and English from 1:30-2:50 p.m. A Tuesday evening section of English is offered from 6:30-9:15 p.m., and a Thursday evening Math 1314 section will be held from 6:30-9:15 p.m. Additionally, there will be a Monday evening (6:30-9:15 p.m.) option for those wanting Psychology.
In addition to the credit cohort, the Conroe Center offers other academic credit and college preparation classes. Face-to-face credit classes (all in the evening) include Principles of Accounting, Introduction to Automotive Technology, Automotive Electrical Systems, Business Principles, and Principles of Management. Developmental (college preparation) classes include Developmental Reading, Developmental Writing, Pre-Algebra Mathematics, Introduction to Algebra, and Intermediate Algebra.
