Registration for Winter Session and Spring 2010 Semester classes at Butte College is now open. From anthropology to sociology, Butte College offers classes for a variety of interests, degrees and certificates as well as UC and CSU transferable unit courses.
The Winter Session begins January 4 – 22 and offers a variety of classes. Most of these classes are three units and meet daily for four hours giving students the perfect opportunity to squeeze in some units between semesters. The 2010 Spring Semester starts January 25 – May 28 and offers day and evening classes on the main campus, Chico Center, and Glenn County Center for convenient scheduling. Online classes are also offered.
With the opening of the new 77,000 square-foot Art Center, a total of 42 instructional areas are especially designed for students studying music, fine art, ceramics, photography, digital art, graphic design, sculpting and theater, among others.
“Butte College offers a quality education at an affordable price to both first time and returning students. The cost of attending Butte College for a year is roughly $780, compared to $4,800 (and climbing) at the CSU, and $8,720 (and higher) at the UC. Private colleges cost over $25,000 and more annually. Many Butte College students opt to save money and take their general education units at Butte, which is the same quality education, and transfer the units to the CSU or UC,” said Lisa DeLaby, Butte College Public Information Officer.
DeLaby said Winter Session and Spring 2010 Semester class schedules are available online at www.butte.edu and classes are already starting to fill. Early registration is recommended. To receive a copy of the class schedule call 530-895-2511. A copy of the catalog is available online: www.butte.edu.
