Convenient 8-Week Classes Can Help You Pursue Your Goals

SPONSORED

Are you ready to take the next step in your education?

If you didn’t get into the classes you wanted this fall—or your plans for school have changed—there are still options available to help you move toward your goals.

McHenry County College (MCC) recently added a selection of 8-week courses for students who may have missed original enrollment deadlines. These abbreviated classes deliver the same content as the traditional 16-week classes, but in half the time of a normal semester.

Upcoming offerings include financial accounting, entrepreneurship, computer ethics, geography, public speaking, physical fitness, women’s health, US government, and Spanish. Classes start October 14.

“MCC has always been focused on offering convenient, local, and affordable education—all of which is becoming increasingly important in light of the uncertainty we’re facing right now,” said Amy Carzoli, director of enrollment services at MCC. “Our goal this fall was to create even more options that show our students there’s still a path forward.”

Many of the 8-week classes are also transferrable for those planning on going back to a four-year school or continuing their education after earning an associate degree.

To accommodate students’ personal preferences, the College also created five different modes of instruction for the fall that range from on-campus delivery to learning in an entirely online format.

Extensive protective measures are in place for those who choose to come to campus. Students, employees, and visitors undergo daily health screenings and temperature checks upon entrance, and face masks must be worn at all times within the building.

Students who have not previously applied can get started by visiting www.mchenry.edu/admissions or calling (815) 479-7732. Current students, returning students, or those who have previously applied can make an appointment with an advisor by visiting www.mchenry.edu/advising, emailing advising@mchenry.edu, or calling (815) 479-7565.
