Late-starting, or flexible-starting classes begin as late as the last week of March.

“Sometimes things happen in life and you don’t have time to register, so Late Start classes give you the chance to still take classes in Spring Semester,” said Ana, who is working toward her Associate of Science degree at Truckee Meadows Community College.

Late Start classes for credit and transfer are now open for enrollment, with sections beginning in February through the end of March. There are conveniently scheduled classes, and evening or once-a-week sections offered. Online courses can fit tight schedules of students that have work or family responsibilities. Many general education classes are also now offered at Meadowood Center, with its convenient location and parking.

“For me, Late Start is good because it’s a seven-week course—it’s fast track, so it can help a student complete their degree faster,” said Sarah, who is studying in the Administrative Professional field.

Parastoo and Joanne Liz are colleagues of Sarah’s as student employees in the Welcome Center at TMCC. Parastoo is working on her associate degree and would like to eventually become an orthodontist.

“It’s good for whoever didn’t remember to register early or was late to register due to a problem with their admission or financial aid,” she said.

Joanne Liz agrees. She is interested in majoring in Community Health Science or applying for the Nursing Program.

“It helps people who might be financially challenged, if they can’t make the first payment deadline and gives them another option,” she said. “It gives them more time to earn money for a class.”
