Still good availability of winter classes at AVC

Posted: December 17, 2012

There are still a number of available classes for Antelope Valley College’s intersession that begins Jan. 2.

Courses in math, business, administration of justice, biology, health education, music and digital media are among those classes still open to students, according to officials.

The college opened up additional classes in the intersession and spring terms and announced plans to expand summer classes following last month’s voter approval of Proposition 30.

Proposition 30 will increase taxes to provide additional funding to grade schools and community colleges. AVC’s share of the new money is expected to be $4.1 million this year – money that is being used to help restore classes that were cut during the state’s fiscal crisis.

“These classes might be especially attractive to university students who are home for winter break. They can take transfer-level courses for less cost than they would pay at a university,” said Steve Standerfer, director of public and governmental relations.
