SPSCC recently shared a list of added in-person classes coming to Olympia and Lacey campuses this fall. From pre-college math to ESL to drama and music, there are many ways for students to connect face-to-face and begin their back-to-campus college experience.
The classes that have remained in-person and hybrid through it all, though, are the outstanding classes in our Professional Technical programs.
SPSCC today announced their participation in a pilot Summer Running Start program focused on reaching underserved high school students. One of three community colleges in Washington State invited to participate, SPSCC will welcome up to 250 students from local urban and rural school districts.
Summer Running Start students can take up to five credits, typically one class, through the tuition-free program. Class fees, books, and supplies still need to be paid by the student, although fee waivers and book loans are available for low-income students.
Fall Quarter instruction at SPSCC will remain primarily virtual, but some in-person options will be added.
As we get closer to registration for Fall Quarter 2021, we have more details about what instruction will look like.
Most instruction will remain online in Fall Quarter, but in-person options will be added in areas where students struggled the most to succeed online:
Thea Deanon, a high school senior on a path to becoming a therapist, decided to enroll in Running Start after she was inspired watching her older brother go through the program. “I thought it was a cool experience and it saved a lot of money. I thought it would be a lot of fun,” she said.
