It’s Not Too Late: Short-Term Fall Classes Still Available at San Diego Mesa College
By Office of Communications
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
Registration is open now for all students. Classes are $46 a unit for California residents.
