Registration Open for Summer 2010
Summer is learning time at Mercer County Community College, and this year the college is offering greater flexibility than ever in its course scheduling. Students can choose credit course sessions of six weeks, eight weeks, 10 weeks or 11 weeks, with starting dates of May 24, June 4, June 21, and July 7.
The college also offers flexibility in its locations, with classes offered at the West Windsor and downtown Trenton campuses, and through The Virtual College, whose student population has been growing rapidly. Online or TV classes are appropriate for highly motivated students, and may be completed from home or office.
Students who are home for the summer from other colleges, and qualified high school students, are welcome to take classes at Mercer. By accumulating transferrable credits during the summer, students can ease their workload for fall, and save tuition costs at their home institution. Adults often attend summer classes to sharpen their skills or begin the journey to a new career. Others take the opportunity to follow up on interests, such as foreign languages, photography, music or the visual arts.
Mercer offers 69 associate degree programs and numerous certificate programs in fields with projected job growth, including education, business, law enforcement, aviation, entertainment technology, exercise science, funeral service and the health professions.
Through the University Center at Mercer, students who complete their associate degree are eligible to transfer into bachelor’s degree programs offered right at Mercer’s West Windsor Campus through William Paterson University, Fairleigh Dickinson University and Felician College.
Dual admissions agreements with regional colleges, and transfer agreements with colleges throughout the country, increase the ease of transfer. Studies show that students who transfer from community colleges do as well as, or better than, students who begin at four-year colleges.
The full summer course bulletin is available at county libraries, at both campuses, and online at www.mccc.edu. A copy may be requested by calling 609-570-3737.
