TCC to hold mini-mester session after Thanksgiving

Student on TCC's Virginia Beach Campus

Tidewater Community College will hold a mini-mester session or a “miniature semester” that will allow students to earn college credits at an accelerated pace between Thanksgiving and Christmas.

The mini-mester session is from Nov. 29 – Dec. 17.

During that time, the college will offer three-week, three-credit courses exclusively online in a variety of subjects, including art, communications, economics, history and math.

Each course will use low- to no-cost digital resources, so no textbooks are needed.

The mini-mester session is designed for:

  • Four-year college students that attend another college or university in Virginia. Visiting students can complete one or more of the classes at TCC in just three weeks and transfer it back to their school. (To determine eligibility for financial aid, students should contact their school’s financial aid office.)
  • High school students can get ahead by earning college credits that can transfer to most Virginia colleges and universities.
  • Current TCC students can keep moving forward with this accelerated session.

Available classes include:

ART 101 History & Appreciation of Art I
CST 110 Introduction to Communications
CST 141 Theatre Appreciation I
ECO 201 Principles of Macroeconomics
HIS 121 United States History II
LGL 200 Ethics for the Paralegal
MTH 154 Quantitative Reasoning
MTH 155 Statistical Reasoning
