Reflecting the growing demand for classes that can be completed from a
personal computer anytime or anywhere, the Community College of Vermont is
offering over 120 credit-bearing courses during its summer 2004 session.
Registration for online courses offered during the summer session is held
from April 26 to May 14.
For Vermont college students looking to get a head start on the upcoming
fall semester or looking to complete a degree requirement while away from
their home university for the summer, CCV's online courses provide an
affordable and high quality option for meeting their educational goals.
Credits earned at CCV are readily transferable and, with the convenience
of more than 120 online courses, students can enroll in a CCV course from
anywhere in the world. Vermont residents also benefit from CCV's in-state
tuition rates, the most affordable college tuition in the state.
Online offerings cover a wide range of subjects, including business,
computer science, humanities, math, science, and psychology. Among the
new classes offered this term are: Desktop Operating Systems, Introduction
to Corrections, and The Literature of New England. The summer session also
provides a strong offering of cross-cultural courses, such as Modern
Middle East History, Peace & Turmoil in the 20th Century and Race,
Ethnicity, Class & Culture. CCV is also offering 12 "hybrid" courses that
combine online and classroom learning. These include: Human Anatomy &
Physiology I & II, Natural History of Vermont, and Introduction to
Counseling Theories & Practice. To view a full selection of summer online

To help students acquire the special study skills required to be
successful learners on the Web, CCV offers free online learning workshops
at each of the sites. Dates and times are listed on the Web site, or you

Students may register at www.ccv.edu/online from April 26 to May 14, or at

May 24. Since many online classes fill quickly, early registration is
recommended. Financial aid is available to qualified students. For more
