If you know students who couldn’t get into core or foundational classes such as Business Analytics, Water Law or Urban Sociology — or are looking to accelerate degree attainment — encourage them to explore these fantastic midsemester courses.

Late-start classes can be particularly valuable for students with challenging schedules, including nontraditional students who don’t have the flexibility or availability to complete a full 16-week course. Late-start courses such as Career Planning, Communication Ethics, Acting Like a Teacher and Stress Management are also helpful for students looking to quickly enhance or increase their skill sets, said Thad Spaulding, interim associate vice president of Enrollment Management.

“Late-start courses also provide options for students who are lifelong learners looking for continuing-education possibilities, as well as individuals who are seeking career and professional-development opportunities,” he added.

Faculty and staff can help promote late-start classes by sharing the Late-Starting search option with students. Visit the fall 2019 course-schedule page to learn more.
