Knock off requirements fast

Diablo Valley College is offering a new program for students to complete a few more units and to meet requirements for their transfer or general education coursework.

December Start Cyber session provides classes that will satisfy DVC GE, CSU GE, or IGETC requirements. There are a couple of classes that are high in demand for students in the program. The three-week classes will be held from Dec. 14 to Jan. 14.

“Students who take on the challenge of completing a class in three weeks requires a major commitment from students, but if they are prepared and in a position to put in the time and do the work, they can move closer to their goals,” wrote Rachel Westlake, Vice President of Instruction.

December Start Cyber session is a pilot program and if successful will be offered next year. Other community colleges in the state have started to offer a similar program that has been successful. Some classes available are Introduction to Business, History of Prehistoric and Ancient Art, and Introduction to the Administration of Justice.

“Our December Start Cyber session is a logical opportunity for students to move closer to their degree, certificate, or transfer goals faster,” wrote Westlake.

Students can appreciate the opportunity to transfer out of DVC quickier if they can focus their attention for a short period of time on one particular subject.

To learn more about the courses, go to the online class schedule from the DVC website and select “December Start Cyber session” in the “Course type” drop-down menu to see all the available courses.
