BCCC schedules late-start classes for January high school grads

Published 5:43am Saturday, January 19, 2013

Beaufort County Community College has scheduled several late-start classes that will give January high school graduates the chance to begin their college careers or job training this semester, college officials announced this week.
The college will offer courses in College Student Success, art, biology, business, computers, composition, algebra and psychology that are available for transfer to one of the 16 colleges and universities that are part of the University of North Carolina system.
The college will also offer industrial technology courses that include drafting and basic wiring for those recent high school graduates who would like to begin training for a career in those fields.
The classes will begin after Tuesday, Jan. 22, to coincide with the schedules of those high school students graduating this month, according to Dean of Instruction Wesley Beddard.
Although designed for those graduates, the classes will be open to all current and new BCCC students who have met the pre-requisites, Beddard said.
“BCCC has designed these classes to give January high school graduates the chance to jump-start their college studies or begin training for a career without wasting the semester,” he said. “January high school graduates or students arriving next week will have a good selection of courses from which to choose.”
