CCC to feature specialty courses, senior discounts this fall

Flagstaff, Ariz. (Aug. 8, 2017) - Coconino Community College has added a variety of specialty courses to the fall schedule.

 

And seniors 65 and older now receive a 25 percent discount on tuition.

 

"We are excited to share some new and unusual credit courses designed for our adult learners in Coconino County this fall," said Dr. Colleen Smith, CCC President. "Some of these intriguing courses include fascinating topics related to our part of the country, alluring literary themes, and cutting-edge courses designed for relevance in technology and today's workforce." 

 

The courses cover Computer Information Systems, Communication, Education, Archaeology and History. Among the courses are: From Job Search to Accepting a Job Offer; Systems Analysis & Design; Cybersecurity Fundamentals; Intro to Education; Archaeology of the West; Social Media for Business; Harry Potter and the Fantastical Literary Elements; Literature of the Southwest; and Outlaws of the West.

 

Some courses are worth one college credit and last eight weeks - either the first eight weeks or second eight weeks of the 16-week semester. Others are worth three college credits and last the entire semester. 

 

Dr. Dudley Gardner, Interim Provost, said, "The courses are designed for people who aren't necessarily interested in seeking a degree or certification, but who are interested in expanding their understanding about a subject while getting some college credit."

 

For seniors age 65 and older, the CCC District Governing Board has approved a 25 percent tuition waiver beginning in the fall for up to six credit hours per semester.

 

The semester begins Monday, Aug. 28, 2017. It is important to note that students in all classes must apply for admission to CCC and be admitted, and tuition payment or arrangements must be made at the time of registration. To enroll, visit the Lone Tree Campus, 2800 S. Lone Tree Road, or go online at www.coconino.edu.
