Registration for both summer and fall semesters opens April 1 at Eastern WV Community & Technical College. Summer registration continues through May 20, and most summer classes begin May 23. For more information, check the summer 2016 course schedule on the college’s website (http://www.easternwv.edu/Current-Students/Eastern-Course-Schedules/Summer-2016-Class-Schedule.aspx), or in person at Eastern’s Moorefield center, just off Corridor H’s mile marker 107.6, two miles east of Route 220.
Eastern offers summer classes in Business Law, Management, Marketing and Administrative Support Technology; Computer Information Systems and Information Technology; Early Childhood Development; English; History; Health; Math; Psychology; Religion; Sociology; Speech; and Wind Energy Turbine Technology. Nearly two dozen summer courses are available in the online format.
Registration for fall semester at Eastern will continue through August 12, and classes begin three days later. Learners can access the fall semester schedule now on Eastern’s website (http://www.easternwv.edu/Current-Students/Eastern-Course-Schedules/Fall-2016-Class-Schedule_revised-03-23-16.aspx).
Students interested in Eastern’s Nursing degree and Elementary Education partnership program can get a head start by registering now for program-required, summer and fall general studies and preparatory courses. (see Eastern’s website at www.easternwv.edu/nursing and www.easternwv.edu/elementary-education for more information).
Other programs include job-oriented skill sets, certificate and associate degrees in automotive technology, electromechanical technology, business, accounting, computers, early childhood development, custom tailored career studies, and general education core classes, noted Amy Crites, the college’s student support specialist.
“Now is the time to come in and meet with us so we can put together the best learning program to meet your goals,” Crites said. “Or just to talk about your interests and concerns, and identify the programs that are the right fit. We ask that you come in early, so we can review the possibilities with you, and explore the financial aid packages that are available.”
Crites urged all learners — adults who have been away from the classroom for a while as much as recent high school graduates — to call the college at 304-434-8000, or toll-free at 877-982-2322, to find out about the full range of learning opportunities at Eastern.
Eastern’s admissions staff and faculty offer full orientation to new students and guidance for those who know that they want more training for the job market but might not know where to begin.
“If a student wants or needs refresher courses in writing or math to get comfortable and ready for college classes,” Crites said, “together we can figure out the starting point based on each individual’s background and goals.”
Eastern has a long service tradition of individual attention to students’ needs. This spring, students have been giving “outstanding reviews” to the college’s new 24/7, real-time, live tutors-on-call service (www.tutor.com), Crites said. “They’re discovering that it’s another strong feature in Eastern’s commitment to student learning and success.”
