October 6 is the application deadline for fall bi-term classes at ACTC. Bi-term classes are eight-weeks long, half the length of traditional semester classes. They have the same content as semester-long classes, but cover the content in a shorter time.
Bi-term classes offer a second chance for new students who want to start classes this fall. Bi-term classes also offer current students the chance to add a class to their schedule. This can be particularly useful to part-time students who started with one or two classes and are ready to add one more.
Students can take up to seven credit hours of classes in general education subjects appropriate for most new students. Many of the classes are offered online.
General Education classes include Intro to Art, Writing I, Writing II, Intro to Personal Communications, General Psychology, Intro to Sociology and Modern Social Problems.
Also offered are Financial Accounting and Managerial Accounting, Basic Algebra and Technical Algebra amp; Trigonometry, Intro to Computers, and several classes in Electricity, Computer Aided Drafting amp; Design and Information Technology.
Bi-term classes start October 13, and new students must complete the application process, including orientation and placement testing, by October 6 Admissions forms and information are online at: ashland.kctcs.edu/admissions. Bi-term class information is online at: ashland.kctcs.edu/bi-term.
