Spring is Your Time to Learn More to Earn More -- Register Now at CCC

 

Enrollment for Camden County College’s Spring 2011 campus, online and hybrid courses is on now, with most classes beginning Jan. 19 or 20. Later-starting sessions get under way Jan. 24, Jan. 28, Jan. 31, Feb. 2, March 1, March 21, March 25 and April 1. Most classes fill up before they begin, so students should register now to avoid missing the opportunity to start, continue or complete a degree or certificate; transfer; or gain career development.

 

Tuition is $96 per credit for Camden County residents and $100 per credit for non-residents – among the lowest in the state and region. Payment may be made by cash, check, money order or credit card in person; by check, money order or credit card by mail; or by credit card online or by phone at (856) 227-7200, ext. 4312.

 

Students who are in financial situations that threaten their pursuit of higher education may use a deferred-payment plan in a two-payment or three-payment option. The first payment in both plans is due at registration, and the second installment in both is due Feb. 15. The third installment of the three-payment plan is due March 15.

 

To reduce the high cost of textbooks, CCC offers students the opportunity to rent some of the books required for their classes for 50 percent less than what they would pay to purchase new. Rentals may be made in any of CCC’s three campus bookstores or at the Web sites camdencc.bncollege.com for Blackwood and Cherry Hill or www.bkstr.com/Home/10001-10454-1 for Camden. The rental program complements CCC’s used-textbook program, which significantly reduces prices for students by making more used books available for purchase.

 

Also this semester, students for whom life has gotten in the way of their pursuit of higher education may take advantage of CCC’s Academic Forgiveness Program and its “no expiration date” policy on credits earned. Academic Forgiveness offers a fresh academic start to students with very low grade-point averages who haven’t been enrolled at CCC for at least five years. Students who performed well enough but never finished their studies may return to CCC and take advantage of the flexible scheduling, academic advisement and tutoring CCC offers.

 

Most students may register online by visiting www.camdencc.edu and clicking on the “Spring 2011 Credit Registration” button under the “Enroll at CCC!” heading. First-time students and students who require financial aid and/or academic advisement should register in person on the Blackwood Campus in Wilson Hall Center; on the Camden City Campus in the Camden Technology Center; or at the William G. Rohrer Center in Cherry Hill.
