VGCC offers Spring Mini-Term Classes

Although the Spring 2017 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 8, 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. 7. The complete list of courses is available by visiting and clicking on the printable “12-Week Mini-Term” schedule.


VGCC has scheduled more than 35 curriculum classes on the 12-week schedule. Most are online, while others are offered in a hybrid format that combines online and traditional on-campus instruction. The courses include not only College Transfer general education courses in subjects such as English, Humanities, Physical Education or Sociology, but also courses required for degrees such as Business Administration and Paralegal Technology.


Several 12-week Criminal Justice courses are scheduled through the “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 Mini-Term, which starts Monday, March 13.


Not only current VGCC students, but also new students are welcome to enroll. New students will need to complete a VGCC application for admission first. Financial aid is available for qualified students. For more information, contact the VGCC Financial Aid Office at or (252) 738-3280.
