Ashland Community and Technical College will hold Spring Semester Registration January 7 to 11.
Hundreds of courses are offered this spring in subjects ranging from accounting to welding, and many classes are offered online or in the evenings to provide options for people with busy schedules.
ACTC students can prepare for immediate employment upon graduation in more 100 high demand careers. Choices include certificate, diploma and associate degree programs in business and education, health care, public service fields, and manufacturing, industrial and transportation technologies.
Students can also prepare for transfer into bachelor degree programs at four-year colleges and universities. ACTC graduates with an Associate in Arts or Associate in Science Degree can transfer to their chosen institution as a junior.
