Late-start classes extend spring term options at COCC


BEND, Ore. (KTVZ) -- While Central Oregon Community College’s spring term is currently underway, the college is offering a lineup of late-start courses, condensed in format, that are designed to extend more academic opportunities to laid-off workers, high school seniors, university students at home and others during the pandemic.

The online courses begin May 11, with an admission deadline of May 6.

Featuring subjects in business administration, college success, health & fitness, history and music, the seven condensed courses will offer their normal credits but operate with an abbreviated timeframe. The classes were selected for their optimal ability to translate into online learning and because they factor into so many degrees and certificates at the college.

“COCC knows that many Central Oregonians are trying to find the best way forward right now,” said Betsy Julian, vice president of instruction, “and we wanted to make getting started at the college as feasible as possible. This late-start option is a new thing for us, but we have a strong history in eLearning and we’re very pleased to provide this opportunity.”

New students are required to follow the same admissions and online orientation processes as when starting at the beginning of the term. Find out more and begin the process today at or 541-383-7700.
