Registration for those planning to attend El Camino College begins June 1 for the summer session and fall semester.Â
Students may choose from three summer sessions, featuring a variety of day and evening courses ranging from basic skills and transferable general education classes to EMT and welding. Online courses in many subjects are also available.
The first six-week summer session begins June 15; the second six-week summer session and an eight-week session both begin June 22. The Fall 2009 semester begins August 29.
"We are aware that some colleges and high school districts are eliminating or shortening summer sessions," said Thomas M. Fallo, superintendent/president of El Camino College, "El Camino College is offering three full summer sessions, as scheduled."
Many students welcome the summer session as an opportunity to take needed classes in a relatively short period of time.
"If I didn't take summer classes I wouldn't be graduating this June - I would probably need another semester," said Chiamaka Sandra Enemuoh, who will transfer to UCLA this fall to study political science. "Summer session classes saved me time and money. It was challenging, but well worth it."Â
