Northeastern Technical College’s fall “minimester” is now offering students the opportunity to earn a semester’s worth of college credit in as little as 8 weeks.

The NETC minimester is ideal for new and returning students who were unable to start the fall semester in August and current students who are looking to earn additional college credit. Current students, taking 15 credit hours or more, have the added benefit of taking minimester courses for no additional tuition.

Minimester registration for new students will be held from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. and 4-6 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 16 at the Cheraw campus. Current students can meet with their advisers beginning Sept. 8 to register for minimester classes.

During the fall minimester, students will have the option to register for 8-week or 10-week classes that are available online, or during the day and evening, at NETC’s college campuses in Cheraw, Bennettsville and Dillon.

Ten-week minimester courses will start Sept. 21. A number of online classes are on the schedule, including college algebra, general psychology, music appreciation, criminal law I, microbiology, probability and statistics, American history, Western civilization, introduction to computers, medical office terminology, payroll accounting and human resources management. On-campus classes include biological science, general psychology and developmental English, math and reading.

Eight-week minimester courses will begin Oct. 8 on the Cheraw campus, with college skills, introduction to computers, intro to composition, critical reading and fundamentals of math courses being offered. English composition II will be available online beginning Oct. 7.

For a complete list of minimester courses, visit www.netc.edu.

New students should submit applications for admission online before Sept. 18 by visiting the admissions page of the college website, www.netc.edu, and clicking on “Apply Online Now.” An application can also be downloaded by clicking on “Download Application.”

Financial aid is available, but applications are required and must be submitted in advance.

Paper-based applications are available and will be accepted at any of the college campuses in Pageland, Cheraw, Bennettsville or Dillon. For more information, call 1-800-921-7399 and choose option 1 for admissions.
