College of the Canyons students looking to get ahead this summer will benefit from the college’s extensive summer class schedule, which is divided into four sessions and includes an entire online-only session.

The 2019 summer session will include seats for more than 20,000 students spread across over 700 sections of high-demand “core” classes in a wide range of academic subjects and disciplines.

Some new courses that will be offered during the summer include the following:
Administration of Justice 125 – Criminal Law
Automotive Technology 103 – Automotive Electrical Systems
Computer Science 122 – Architecture/Assembly Language
English 250 – British Literature
English 271 – Mythology
French 102 – Elementary French 102
Construction Technology 103 – Blueprint Reading for Construction
Paralegal 180 – Estate Planning
Real Estate 105 – Real Estate Financing
Surveying 110 – Computer Aided Drafting for Surveyors
The majority of class sections offered will be courses that most students need to either graduate with an associate degree, meet prerequisites for transfer to a four-year school or gain the skills required to obtain employment in a high-demand field in the local workforce. Summer provides an excellent opportunity for incoming students to get a jump start on their coursework before the start of the fall semester in August.

Students and community members looking to enroll in a summer course are encouraged to attend the college’s one-stop shop student registration and orientation event ‘Summer Rush’ being held from 1 to 6 p.m. Thursday, May 23 at the college’s Canyon Country campus.

During the Summer Rush event, college staff from a variety of key student services departments will be available to provide personalized, on-site services designed to help students apply, register and enroll in a ‘one-stop shop’ format. Drop-in counseling and new student advisement workshops will also be available. Students are asked to park in Lot 3 and check in at Quad 1.

Summer 2019 courses will be offered at both the Valencia and Canyon Country campuses, as well as online.

In addition, a number of elective and exploratory courses — which students often use to help determine their desired educational or career track — have also been included in the 2019 summer schedule.

“Summer is a great time for students to take classes that can help them with transferring to a university, job training and advancement or for leisure,” said Omar Torres, associate vice president of academic services at the college. “In addition, students currently enrolled in four-year colleges and universities might also benefit from the numerous classes offered by COC which will enable them to advance in their fields of study. With so many classes, there is one that fits most students’ needs.”

Also, high school juniors and seniors can take advantage of the robust offerings to earn college and high school credit while taking classes at COC with waived enrollment fees.

The college’s first five-week summer session will run June 3 to July 6.

A second eight-week summer session will begin June 10 and run until August 3.

The third summer session, which runs from June 17 to July 20, will be held entirely online.

A final five-week summer session will be offered from July 8 to August 10.

The college’s summer schedule of classes is now posted online.

High school students (11th and 12th grade) can begin registering May 21, 2019.

A final late registration period for all students will begin May 28, 2019.

Summer 2019 enrollment fees at all California Community Colleges will remain at $46-per-unit, as mandated by the state of California.
