Summer II classes begin, fall registration continues
First day of summer 2Classes began at 8 a.m. on Monday, July 13, for the second summer session.

Students who have not made payment arrangements must do so now or risk being dropped from classes.

The second summer session will end on Tuesday, August 18.

Registration, both online and in person, continues for fall semester classes at SWTJC.

SWTJC registrar Luis Fernandez reminds students that time is running out to get applications for financial aid completed.

"Students who will be seeking financial aid and who haven't completed all their paperwork need to get busy," Fernandez said.

Registration for fall classes started in April and over 2,500 students have already registered.

Fernandez says the earlier students register the better their chances of getting the instructors they want, the classes they need and the times they need them.

"Registering early also gives students more time to arrange payment options," Fernandez said.
