As the world continues to embrace physical distancing, and in the wake of moving all remaining Spring classes to online and remote learning platforms to adhere to CDC guidelines, Cape Cod Community College (4Cs) will move their entire slate of Summer classes to digital spaces.
4Cs offers two Summer sessions broken into seven-week semesters: Session One from May 18 – – July 7, and Session Two from July 8 -August 26.
While the move marks the first time the College has moved an entire semester to an online/remote format, it also allows for more students across the region to access courses. Classes that begin May 18 include General Education courses like English, History, and Math, as well as courses in areas like Health Science, Criminal Justice, Communication, and Business. After completion of these classes, students have the ability to transfer their credits to most four-year colleges and universities, saving thousands of dollars and a significant amount of time.
“As we all move through these unchartered times together, Cape Cod Community College is making a commitment to not only continue to provide higher education to the communities we serve, but to expand our ability to bring our classes right to you,” said John Cox, President of Cape Cod Community College. “By bringing our Summer classes exclusively online, we create flexibility for our community, and we create more affordable pathways for students to take classes at 4Cs, and even transfer them to their four-year institution in the future.”
The cost of one Summer class at 4Cs is $669 for in-state residents while the cost of similar courses at most four-year schools in Southeastern Massachusetts can average more than $2,000. Financial assistance may be available.
Student support services to help ease the transition to an online/remote learning environment, including digital tutoring sessions, online Library resources, and student wellness check-ins, have been implemented during the current Spring semester, and will also be available for both Summer sessions.
Registration for online Summer classes at 4Cs is open now, with a full list of courses available at capecod.edu/online/summer.
