VGCC offers Spring Mini-Term Classes

Although the Spring 2016 semester at Vance-Granville Community College is underway, there are still opportunities to register for a variety of classes offered during “mini-terms.” These sections start later during the semester, but end on May 9, at the same time as the full 16-week courses, and they include just as many hours of instruction as under the traditional schedule.

The Spring 12-Week Mini-Term begins on Tuesday, Feb. 9. The complete list of courses is available by visiting and clicking on the printable “12-Week Mini-Term” schedule.

VGCC has scheduled more than 30 curriculum classes on the 12-week schedule, most of which are offered online. The courses include not only College Transfer general education courses in subjects such as English or History, but also courses required for degrees such as Accounting, Computer Technology Integration, Medical Office Administration and Paralegal Technology.

Several Criminal Justice courses are scheduled, including some that are part of the new “Vanguard Online Learning through Technology,” or VOLT, initiative, which allows students to complete an entire associate degree online.

There are also a few courses offered during the Second 8-Week Term, which starts Tuesday, March 8. The complete list of these courses is available by visiting and clicking on the printable “2nd 8-Week Mini-Term” schedule.
