Registration has begun for community college classes; master’s programs coming

Posted

School soon will be in session at the first higher education facility in Castle Rock - the new Arapahoe Community College Campus at 4700 Castleton Way.

Registration already has opened for fall classes, which will get under way in mid-October and end by mid-December. Most classes being offered will be held during afternoons and evenings.

Course offerings include public speaking, world geography, United States History, intermediate algebra, introduction to philosophy, general psychology, astronomy, conversational Spanish and English composition.

Five of the 13 classes being offered have a hybrid format, combining a traditional classroom experience with the flexibility of online instruction. Seven of the courses are guaranteed to transfer to any Colorado public higher education institution.

The Castle Rock campus - in the same building as MyWedding.com, visible from Interstate 25 on the northwest side of Town - still is under construction. It is expected to be completed by mid-September. Jill Garber, a Castle Rock resident, has been hired as campus director. She will begin working at ACC's Littleton campus on Sept. 1 and will move to the Castle Rock campus once construction is completed.

ACC is regionally accredited, offers more than 100 degrees and certificates and has the lowest tuition among Colorado's public higher education institutions. Financial aid is available.

New students can apply for admission - and all students can register - at arapahoe.edu. Assistance with these processes is available at the Littleton campus, 5900 S. Santa Fe Drive, or by calling 303-797-5637. For more information, email castle.rock@arapahoe.edu.

Also coming soon to Castle Rock is the opportunity to earn a master's degree in business administration or management and leadership without ever leaving Town.

Webster University will offer courses toward those degrees starting in January at the Castle Rock Chamber of Commerce. Classes will be held from 5:30 to 9:30 p.m. Thursdays.

The program consists of five nine-week classes per year, with breaks in between each class. Participants can earn a degree in a little more than two years (or sooner).

Tuition is $1,500 per class for the 2011-12 school year. Military discounts and financial aid are available, as well as transfer credit, if applicable. Learn more at webster.edu/CastleRock, call 303-708-8305 or attend an open house from 6 to 7 p.m. Sept. 15 at the Chamber, 420 Jerry St.
