Late_start courses begin Aug. 27 at PRCC | Schools
The following is a press release from Pearl River Community College:
Even though Pearl River Community College’s Fall 2012 semester is well underway, another option is available to students who may not have been able to enroll in classes at the start of the school year.
For the first time in the college’s history, PRCC will offer late_start courses, or classes that begin after the semester is already underway.
Late_start classes begin the week of Aug. 27 at the Poplarville campus and the Forrest County Center in Hattiesburg. Final exams for these late_start classes are Dec. 4_7.
“Late_start classes provide another option for students as do weekend classes and short_term online classes,” said Dr. Martha Lou Smith, vice president for general education and technology services. “Today’s student faces many demands. Pearl River Community College recognizes the need to create a variety of educational opportunities.”
Course offerings on the Poplarville campus include:
English Comp I, Intermediate English, General Biology I and General Biology I Lab, Intermediate Algebra, Beginning Algebra, College Algebra, Reading, College Success Skills, Hybrid Art Appreciation, Personal and Community Health and First Aid/CPR.

“Students interested in pursuing a higher education now have another option to attend Pearl River Community College this fall,” said Chuck Abadie, director of public relations. “If they are looking to pick up general education requirements, they can take advantage of these shorter and alternative scheduling and delivery options.
“This program is one more way that Pearl River is working to provide exactly what our students need, when they need it.”
