ACTC Bi-term Classes Start October 21

October 7 is the enrollment deadline for Fall bi-term classes at Ashland Community and Technical College. Bi-term classes start October 21, and the term is eight-weeks long, half the length of a traditional semester. Bi-term classes have the same content as semester-long classes but cover the content in a shorter time.

Bi-term classes offer a second chance for enrollment to those who missed August admission deadline, said Janie Kitchen, ACTC Dean of Academic Affairs. Students can get one or two classes out of the way now, without waiting for spring semester.

Students can take up to seven credit hours of classes in general education subjects appropriate for most new students. Some of the classes are offered online, and classes still open are listed below.

Communications/English classes are Basic Public Speaking, Intro to Interpersonal Communication, Foundations of College Writing I, Foundations of College Writing II, Intro to Literature and Writing I.

Humanities and social science classes are Intro to Art, History of Europe to the Mid-17th Century, Intro to the Humanities, General Psychology and Intro to Sociology.
