Are you planning on launching or continuing your college journey in 2020? Spring classes starting Jan. 13 include a variety of class options. Online classes and eight-week classes can help you create a schedule just right for you.

Rachel McCaughey of Davenport is pursuing her Associate in Arts degree through online class options while working full-time. She has completed eight-week classes and likes that session length.

“It is like the regular class but on fast forward,” she said. “You don’t have the leisure of taking your time with assignments. You have to stay on top of things, but I honestly found it kept me on task and I enjoyed the fact that after eight short weeks, that class is done.”

The Spring 2020 class schedule on the Schedule of Classes page includes minimester courses. Registration information is available on the Register for Classes page. For more information, call 309-796-5100.
