Those interested in enrolling at one of the leading community college districts in California can now register for classes for the spring semester and winter intersession at San Diego City, Mesa, and Miramar colleges.
Priority registration in the San Diego Community College District (SDCCD) begins today for members of the military, those living with a disability, current students, and others. Open registration for new students begins Dec. 14.
The SDCCD is offering more than 4,000 courses ranging from accounting to web development that could help many of the nearly 300,000 San Diego County residents who lost their job due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The SDCCD offers award-winning workforce training programs for a number of good-paying, recession- and pandemic-resilient careers identified in a recent San Diego-Imperial Centers of Excellence for Labor Market Research report, including secretaries and administrative assistants, registered nurses, medical assistants, dental assistants, computer operations specialists, machinists, and more.
Additionally, San Diego Continuing Education’s new ICOM Academy (an acronym for Interactive Competency-based Online Microcredentialing) offers fast, free, and flexible job training and career placement services that can help those who have been displaced by COVID-19’s impact on the economy.
SDCCD students also are afforded a multitude of support services, such as educational and career planning, academic counseling, health services, financial aid, and child care.
There are few better investments you can make in yourself. A student with an associate degree from one of the SDCCD’s colleges will earn, on average, more than $400,000 over their working lifetime compared to someone with just a high school education. And at $46 per unit, enrollment fees are among the lowest in the country for a higher education. Many students attending City, Mesa, and Miramar colleges, however, do not pay tuition, thanks to the San Diego Promise, the California College Promise Grant, and other financial aid opportunities. San Diego Continuing Education classes are free.
Nearly all classes will be held online due to continued health precautions related to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Spring semester classes at City, Mesa, and Miramar colleges start Feb. 1, 2021 and continue through May 29. Four-week intersession classes run from Jan. 4-30. Students can view the online class schedule by visiting the SDCCD website. Prospective students can apply to City, Mesa, or Miramar colleges at classschedule.sdccd.edu. Spring semester classes at Continuing Education start Feb. 1 and conclude June 11.
