Open enrollment for fall semester underway
August 3, 2015 |
The San Diego Community College District (SDCCD) announces that open enrollment for the fall semester at City, Mesa, and Miramar colleges begins Aug. 3.
Students are encouraged to register early in order to have the best chance of getting the classes they need at their preferred times.
An estimated 53,000 students are expected back when classes resume Aug. 24. This is a 4 percent increase over last fall and a sign of continuing enrollment demand. Students will have 150 additional course sections to choose from. Many classes are offered online.
District Chancellor Constance M. Carroll says, “The district is pleased to offer an expanded schedule of classes for fall due to our colleges’ continuing enrollment growth, which the state has acknowledged with increased funding.”
To accommodate new student demand, the SDCCD is hiring 31 additional full-time faculty members between now and January. Many of these new faculty members bring years of teaching experience having worked locally as adjunct professors, sometimes referred to as “freeway flyers.”
At $46 per unit, California community colleges offer an affordable way to secure a college degree. Financial aid information is available on each college’s website.
In addition to the district’s three for-credit colleges, San Diego Continuing Education offers free adult education classes. Continuing Education’s fall semester begins Sept. 8.
