San Diego, CA – Even though the semester is well underway, prospective students can still enroll for open “short-term” classes this fall Mesa College, most of which start on October 12. Seats are still available in over 40 classes, all of which are on-line. Short-term classes are 8-weeks, and designed so that students can earn units more quickly. Students are encouraged to enroll and register as soon as possible. Courses still available include Accounting, Computer Business Technology, Chicano Studies, Exercise Science, Fashion, Health, Nutrition, Multimedia and Philosophy, many of which can fulfill general or specific education requirements for students looking to both earn a degree or transfer.

“Having access to classes is really valuable for students right now,” stated President Pamela Luster. “With multiple on-line courses available, with courses that are transferable to the CSU or UC system, we are making it really easy for any student to get the credits that they need to complete their degrees.”

Mesa College is recognized for having the largest number of students who earned degrees designed to transfer to the California State University system – and has transfer options to SDSU. This is an important consideration for many students who want to go on to earn a higher degree once they leave Mesa College.

However, classes aren’t only for students pursuing a four-year degree.  Students interested in Career Education, to gain immediate in-demand job skills can take classes such as Accounting, Business, Child Development, Computer Science, Culinary Arts, Fashion, Fitness, Geographic Information Systems (GIS), Health Information Technology, Hospitality, Medical Assisting, Multimedia, Phlebotomy, Real Estate, Teacher Education and Web Development – all of which can be applied towards an Associate’s Degree in their respective Departments.

Registration is open now for all students. Classes are $46 a unit for California residents. Visit to learn more, view the schedule of open classes, and register.
