Mendocino College Announces Courses for Spring 2010
With current budget constraints in mind, Mendocino College has scheduled classes for Spring 2010 to serve students seeking to transfer to four-year schools; students majoring in career and technical areas such as agriculture and business; and students entering the college needing to upgrade skills in math and English. Several credit classes for the community have been shifted to Community Extension, such as yoga, tap dance and golf. The Spring 2010 schedule is available at www.mendocino.edu.
“While taking a Community Extension workshop may cost slightly more, the advantage is that participants do not have to worry about grades or transcripts,” said Meridith Randall, Vice President of Education and Student Services. “Also, workshops can be repeated over and over, unlike credit classes, and participants do not have to fill out applications or other college paperwork.” The college will post a listing of Community Extension workshops on its website by late November and will distribute a flyer in the community.
Another change is that the Spring 2010 schedule will no longer be mailed to every household in the district, for both budgetary and sustainability reasons. Instead, a postcard will be sent to remind residents to check the website for courses. Paper schedules will still be available at college campuses, including Lakeport and Willits, high schools, and locations such as Raley’s and Safeway in Ukiah.
Some highlights of the Spring 2010 schedule are a full array of online courses, including math, English and transferrable general education courses; expanded science offerings in Ukiah, including a chemistry section at night; expanded offerings in Business Office Technology and Child Development; both Mexican American history and Native American history in Ukiah; and transferrable dance classes that will culminate in the annual Spring Dance Festival. There are also additional offerings in Round Valley, including Introduction to Psychology.
Because the college has limited offerings for spring, new students are encouraged to attend upcoming orientations to get priority registration and continuing students should take advantage of their priority dates. To register for orientations in Ukiah, new students should call 468-3048. Open registration will start on November 23, both online and in person.
