late start fall

It’s not too late to register for fall classes at Atlantic Cape Community College. The college is offering an 8-week “Late Start” semester on October 26. These classes, including popular courses such as Art, Business, English, Math, Psychology and more, will be offered online. There are dozens of classes available to take from the comfort and safety of home.

With many college students opting for a “gap year” due to COVID-19 and waiting to return to a “normal” college experience in a year, Atlantic Cape’s Late Start classes are a great option for those who have had to pivot their plans. Enrolling in these online, abbreviated classes is a great way to earn transferable credits while not accumulating student debt. Ease, accessibility, and affordability are advantages that many students are already benefiting from.

“We know these are uncertain times, but we are here to support our current and prospective students in their educational journeys,” said Dr. Barbara Gaba, president of Atlantic Cape Community College. “Our goal is to provide students with options that benefit their needs. These classes can motivate those to continue learning while guiding others to new career paths. It’s not too late to get started this fall and we can help.”

Financial aid, scholarships and grant funding are available to make your education even more affordable, and qualified students are eligible for tuition-free college. Atlantic Cape is even providing loaner computers to those in need to ensure students can access online classes.
