Many Options Offered in Short Summer Session

April 20, 2020

The start of Wayne Community College’s summer term is just a month away.

The two-month session provides students the opportunity to complete courses quickly and affordably, whether they are simply interested in the topic or need to catch up or get ahead in a program of study at WCC or other higher education institution.

“Wayne Community College offers an array of courses that are perfect for university students wanting to continue with their academic studies while home for the summer,” noted Dr. Brandon Jenkins, WCC Arts and Sciences dean. “These courses are economical and can easily be transferred to the student’s college or university. Due to COVID-19, nearly all college transfer classes are being conducted online or in limited hybrid format.”

More than 200 courses will be taught with 145 of those offered online and a couple dozen are hybrids (split between online and classroom delivery).

Available courses range from American Government, Art Appreciation, and Anatomy and Physiology to Swine Health Management, Serious Games, and School-Age Development and Programs. All summer courses are listed on the college’s webpage.

The term begins May 27 and ends July 29. A few “late start” courses run mid-June to early July.

Registration for summer courses begins next week for new students. Currently enrolled students began registering April 20.Before new students can register, they must apply and be accepted into the college. The application is online and the acceptance interview, which provides the student with information about the next steps, can be completed over the telephone. The college’s website outlines the process.

New students then contact their advisors who will help them plan and register for the summer term. The open registration period is April 27 through May 8 and on May 26 until 7 p.m.

“The college is making every effort to ensure that the student’s needs can be met without visiting the campus,” said Director of Admissions and Records Jennifer Mayo.

Mayo noted that WCC’s website now features a live chat box that is manned by personnel in multiple departments who can answer questions during business hours.

Individuals can also send email to specific departments: Admissions and Records, Counseling Services, Financial Aid, and Business Office Cashier.

WCC’s current cost is $76 per semester hour for in-state students and $268 per semester hour for out-of-state students for tuition, plus fees.

Summer tuition and fees must be paid by 7 p.m. on May 26. Students are encouraged to pay online but those who cannot do so can pay in person May 18-21. The college’s payment plan is also an option.
