More than 100 classes still available this semester
September 4, 2012
There is still time to enroll for the fall semester at A-B Tech through flexible four- and eight-week mini-mester classes. Four-week classes in Success and Study Skills, Business, Computers, English, History, Humanities, Marketing, Psychology and Sociology start Sept. 18, Oct. 17 and Nov. 14.
Compressed courses are particularly suited for working adults, single parents or students who have difficulty juggling multiple classes. Participants in four- and eight-week classes have also been shown to have a lower withdrawal rate and higher average grades than students in traditional 16-week classes.
“Four-week classes mean students don’t have to take more than one class at a time, and they don’t have to make it through a full 16-week semester before they earn any credits,” said A-B Tech President Hank Dunn.
The format allows students to immerse themselves in a single subject for four weeks. Each class meets the same learning objectives as a 16-week class and provides the same amount of credit. The scheduling allows students to concentrate on assignments, projects and tests without other classes competing for their time.
More than 100 classes across the curriculum will start Oct. 17 in the eight-week format, to make it convenient for students to pick up courses that may have been full at the beginning of the semester.
The next session of fall semester classes starts Sept. 18. For more information, visit abtech.edu
