Mini-mesters, which are usually offered in December and May, are just one of several ways to earn college credit at  LSC-University Park. “Mini-mesters are a great opportunity for students currently enrolled at LSC-University Park or those who are back in the area on break from a four-year college or university to earn additional college credits,” Lawrence Brandyburg, vice president of instruction and student services said. Mini-mesters allow students to take a typical 16-week course that has been condensed into three or four weeks. Select courses are available in accelerated time frames and meet the standard number of contact hours.
