June 17 is the deadline to apply for Summer Session II classes at Ashland Community and Technical College.
With summer classes, high school graduates have a chance to experience college level work before starting fall courses. Continuing students can complete their college program in a shorter time. Adults seeking new skills and knowledge for work advancement can complete a course in just five weeks.
Summer II classes are offered in general education subjects required for nearly every associate and bachelor degree. These classes in communications, math, science, social science and heritage/humanities provide a good start on college because they cover basic knowledge and skills required for any major area of study.
Online classes in Summer II are Intro to Communications, Developmental Psychology, History of Europe to the Mid-17th Century, Intro to Religious Studies, Criminal Law, and Issues and Ethics in Criminal Justice.
General Psychology, General College Chemistry and Lab, Pharmacology, Basic Algebra, Pre-Algebra and Applied Mathematics are offered on campus. Welding classes and labs held at the Technology Drive Campus include Shielded Metal Arc Welding, Gas Metal Arc Welding and Welding Certification. A Diesel Undercarriage Lab is offered at the Roberts Drive Campus.
Summer session II starts June 24 and ends July 26. In-state tuition is $140 per credit hour, and residents of neighboring Ohio and West Virginia counties qualify for in-state tuition.
