Late Start classes for credit and transfer at Truckee Meadows Community College begin in the middle of February, while others start as late as the third week in March, but they all conclude in May.

Courses are now open for enrollment, and are scheduled to be convenient for students taking other classes, have jobs or family responsibilities. Options include online, evening or once-a-week sections. There are 148 classes offered as late-starting options.

“Many subjects are offered and it’s a great opportunity for students to fit in one more Spring Semester class,” said Andy Hughes, Director of Admissions and Records.
