Star Valley Outreach’s schedule of classes is now available.
Once again this year, Barbara Hayton has given us permission to use one of her incredible pictures of a Star Valley winter morning for the cover. These easily recognized brochures may be picked up at various businesses or other locations throughout Star Valley and in each community. Of course, you may pick one up at the office or if you’d prefer an electronic copy, call us at 886-3834 and we’ll be glad to e-mail it to you.
Over 130 College Credit classes are being taught over the Internet this semester. According to WWCC Coordinator, “Courses will not only apply towards Western Wyoming Community College degrees, but ma also be transferred to other institutions. Of course, if you’re looking to start your college degree, contact us at 307-886-3834 and let us help you.”
In addition, all college credit classes may be audited by individuals who do not desire the credit but want to obtain the information taught in the courses. Tuition does not change, but completing class assignments and taking tests becomes optional, and no grade appears on the transcript.
Ten high school concurrent classes (high school courses in which the student may receive college credit) are available this semester. WWCC employees have already started assisting students with registration procedures, and will be returning to the high school during the next couple of weeks. One of the requirements for concurrent registration is for parents to approve their student’s classes. Those whose child has registered will receive either an e-mail or a text message asking for approval. This is a totally new procedure and we’re happy to help.
Fewer non-credit classes are being offered this semester due to COVID restrictions, but there are 15 to choose from: Finding Joy With Mindfulness and Meditation, Braiding Rawhide, Water Bath Canning, Zumba Gold, Cardio Kickboxing, Getting the Most from Your Social Security, Radio Control Aircraft, Finding Your Family, Women’s Self Awareness and Safety, Dog Training 101, and gardening classes
For those who cannot or do not wish to attend classes, hundreds of Non-Credit Internet classes are available. The entire listing can be found at www.ed2go.com/starvalley.
Several options are available: 1) Instructor Led Courses. These six-week courses begin on the second Wednesday of each month, and provide not only personal enrichment opportunities but Teacher Recertification Credit, Nursing CEUs, and vocational classes and certificates, as well. 2) Self-Paced Tutorials. These classes start anytime at the student’s convenience, but must be completed in 12 weeks. 3) Career Training Programs. Much more extensive than the other two class options, these programs can be completed between 6 and 18 months, and will help students prepare for employment and national certifications.
A form has been provided on the back of the book. Phone-in registration is also available for those using a Visa or MasterCard. NOTE: Although registrations for some non-credit classes will be accepted later in the semester, early registration is encouraged. Tuition must be paid at the time of registration.
