South Texas College also offers students the ability to earn their degree at their own pace by registering for any one of the dozens of mini-mester classes beginning on May 22.

Mini-mesters are ideal for students who were unable to begin the semester in the typical fashion. They’re shorter in length and offer flexibility for a busy schedule. As an extra bonus, students can register for a Mini-mester course right up to the first day of each class.

For the summer 2017 term, mini-mesters are offered in 4 to 14 week sessions with the first starting on May 22, and the last starting on July 31 before the fall semester begins.

Mini-mesters offer the same quality instruction and the same credit, in a shorter time span. Several core classes are being offered in traditional and online settings.
