Open registration for fall semester at City, Mesa, and Miramar colleges begins Aug. 6
July 26, 2018 |
More options for online and evening classes – along with new certificate and degree programs – are on the menu when the San Diego Community College District launches open registration for San Diego City, Mesa, and Miramar colleges on August 6.
The fall semester begins August 20. Among the new offerings at City College are associate degree programs in economics, agriculture plant science, global development studies, and film, television and electronic media; Mesa College is offering more than three dozen new courses ranging from fashion to web design; and Miramar College is providing added opportunities for students to take courses in accounting, astronomy, communication, and psychology.
A student who earns an associate degree from the SDCCD can expect to earn on average approximately $11,000 more annually than someone with just a high school diploma at the midpoint of their working career. Over a working lifetime, that increase in earnings amounts to approximately $407,000 in added income.
Whether they are looking to earn a degree, transfer to a university, or take a course or two to sharpen their professional skills, students can choose classes in more than 400 academic programs. And at just $46 per unit, the SDCCD offers the lowest-price, higher-education option in the country. What’s more, first-time, full-time students can attend a San Diego Community College District campus tuition-free for two years through the district’s San Diego Promise program (sign up by Aug. 3 deadline).
Classes at Continuing Education, the largest noncredit program in California, begin Sept. 4 and are free. Go to sdce.edu for more information.
