Mini-mesters offer second chance at college credit

If time got away from you and you weren’t able to enroll in classes for the fall 2012 semester, Northeast State is offering a second chance to enroll in mini-mester courses to earn college credit.

Northeast State developed mini-mesters to help students who have work or family responsibilities that make it difficult to attend classes during a long semester, which are typically 15 weeks. A mini-mester course can be completed in fewer weeks and students receive the same quality instruction and credit hours.

Enroll this fall in the “mini-mesters” at Northeast State.

The College offers more than 50 courses this fall with courses in business management, English, computer applications, computer and information sciences, history, humanities, learning strategies, learning support mathematics, office administration technology, and reading. Depending on the course, a mini-mester may run three weeks or seven weeks.

The three-week sections are slated Aug. 27 through Sept. 17, Sept. 24 through Oct. 12, Oct. 22 through Nov. 9, and Nov. 15 through Dec. 7. The seven-week sections run from Oct. 22 through Dec. 7.  For a complete listing of fall mini-mester offerings, visit
