West Windsor, NJ: Based on a new agreement with the East Windsor schools, Mercer County Community College is offering credit courses for the Spring 2012 semester at Hightstown High School. The classes begin January 23 and run through May 11.
The classes offer convenience and accessibility for community members of all ages, especially for Hightstown and East Windsor residents. High school juniors and seniors are eligible to enroll and get a head start on earning college credits.
According to MCCC Vice President for Academic Affairs Dr. Guy Generals, the college has been seeking new ways to reach out to the Hightstown community. “Our offerings at Hightstown this spring are easily transferrable college classes designed to give community members a leg up on getting through college. MCCC offers affordability and first-rate faculty.”
All three classes meet at the high school in the evening. They are:
- Computer Concepts/Applications (IST101) meets Mondays and Wednesdays 7 to 8:50 p.m.
- English Composition I (ENG101) meets Tuesdays and Thursdays 5:30 to 6:45 p.m.
