Northark offering a host of summer courses, camps and clinics

Wed May 10, 2017 at 10:57 AM

With the end of semester upon us, most students are finished with finals and are looking forward to enjoying summer.

However, more and more students are taking classes for all or part of the summer. This is a popular option for students looking to catch up or move ahead. Even though courses are squeezed into a tighter time-frame, enrolling in summer courses can provide more one-on-one time with instructors and can lighten the load for the following semester. Focusing in on harder classes during summer can also boost students’ GPA.

To answer increased demand for summer learning opportunities, North Arkansas College is offering two summer sessions. Classes start May 30 and continue through June 29 (five week session), the eight week session continues through July 20. Summer Session II is July 3 – August 3. 

University students who are home for the summer can enjoy small class sizes and low tuition rates of $71 for Boone County residents. There are several online courses for students who want to learn from home.

Popular summer courses such as College Algebra, History, Anatomy and Physiology are offered, in addition to the new Community CNA class.

Non-credit courses include Buffalo River Basic Life Support CPR/AED, Basic Wilderness First Aid, Beginning Canoeing, Fly Fishing, Plein Air Painting, EMT Upgrade, First Responders (WFR) and more. Other offerings include Adobe Photoshop Intro, Excel Formulas, Excel Level III, Grant Writing and Wiring Basics. Expanded youth camps and clinics include Robotic Camp, Design & Construct Camp, Teen Community Emergency Response Team Camp, softball, basketball and tennis.

Enrollment is open now.
