West Hills College students focus on registration for spring classes

From West Hills College

It’s that time of year when students are looking ahead to spring and the next semester of college. Registration is under way and a wide variety of classes are offered for the spring term, which begins Jan. 11. “Even though fall’s final exams are more than a month away, students should be focused on registering for the Spring 2016 semester at West Hills College Coalinga, West Hills College Lemoore and North District Center, Firebaugh,” according to the registrar.

“Students can register anytime for Spring 2016 classes,” said Rita Grogan, Associate Vice Chancellor of Enrollment Management and Institutional Effectiveness. “If they need help applying for admission or identifying courses that meet their educational goals, they can contact an advisor or counselor at the colleges near them. We’re looking forward to seeing new names on the class rosters soon!”

There is still plenty of classroom space at each campus and online in courses including basic nutrition, biology, administration of justice, art and more. Students can also register for the first time for a new Career Technical Education (CTE) Academy, which was offered in the Fall 2015 semester at West Hills College Lemoore and will begin during the upcoming semester at WHCC.

The intensive, two semester long computer coding and programming course will offer students the chance to learn about HTML, Java, and CSS and become job ready for a position in the programming field in less than a year.

West Hills College is a popular choice for area students, offering caring faculty, smaller class sizes, and costs that are significantly less than other higher education options.

“The quality of education at West Hills is second to none,” said Stu Van Horn, Vice Chancellor, Educational Services and Workforce Development. “This year, USA Today ranked WHCL as the number one community college in northern California. The college was also honored this year with one of the coveted Awards for Innovation in Higher Education, offered by the State; only 14 California colleges, including just five community colleges, won one of the awards. West Hills won for its revolutionary Reg365 year-in-advance registration system, becoming the first community college in California to introduce the popular option.”
