JWCC to Offer Winter Break Online Classes in December

Classes open to all students, transferable to colleges and universities nationwide

John Wood Community College will once again provide classes for students during winter break. The four-week session is offered entirely online from December 13 to January 7. Courses range from one to three credit hours and students from any college or university may enroll. High school students may also take courses if approved by their school’s guidance counselor.

“The extended break can be extremely productive for students from any college or university, or even high school students who want to jumpstart their degree,” Kristen Ritterbusch, JWCC director of admissions shared. “Four-weeks is an accelerated timeframe, but for the right students, it can be a great way to knock out a general education class at a much lower tuition rate to transfer back to their home institution.”

Registration for Winter Session is open now. Tuition at John Wood Community College is 30-50% less than 4-year schools. Register now and receive a $30/credit discount. Transfer students should check with their home advising office to determine course transferability and equivalency.

Classes offered include: Coaching as a Profession, Health and Hygiene, Introduction to Humanities, Elementary Statistics, American Government, Human Relations in the Workplace, Introduction to Sociology and First Year Experience – Blazing Your Trail.
