Piedmont Community College’s (PCC) registration for summer courses is open now for those looking to get a head start on their degree, save on university debt, or want to graduate early. Curriculum classes are 10 weeks long and start May 22.

“There are many advantages to taking classes in the summer,” said Dr. Barbara Buchanan, Vice President of Instruction/Chief Academic Officer, PCC. “Summer is the perfect opportunity for new students to ease into their studies and for current students to get ahead on finishing their degree. One overlooked opportunity is for students studying at universities, where they can take one or two classes here at PCC while they are home for the summer, learning the same curriculum at a fraction of the cost, to transfer back in the fall and ultimately cut their student debt.”

Available classes include Accounting, Gunsmithing, Nurse Aid, Welding, and Transfer Success, among others, as well as various General Education courses in English, Science, History, Math, and Social Sciences. Work-based learning opportunities are also available that provide students with on-the-job training and connect them with professionals in their field of focus.

Classes are available in person, online, or in a hybrid format. A full list of classes can be found at www.piedmontcc.edu/summer.

PCC’s summer curriculum semester starts Monday, May 22, with new short-term workforce development opportunities beginning each month. Prospective students can apply to begin their associate degree at www.piedmontcc.edu/apply, and students seeking short-term certifications can find monthly opportunities at www.piedmontcc.edu/workforce-development.
