Fall bi-term classes at Ashland Community and Technical College start October 8. Bi-term classes are eight-weeks long, half the length of traditional semester classes. They have the same content as semester-long classes, but cover the content in a shorter time.
“Bi-term classes offer a ‘second chance’ for enrollment to those who missed August admission deadline,” said Janie Kitchen, ACTC Dean of Academic Affairs. “Students can get one or two classes out of the way now, without waiting for spring semester.”
Students can take up to seven credit hours of classes in general education subjects appropriate for most new students. Some of the classes are offered online.
Communications/English classes are Basic Public Speaking, Intro to Interpersonal Communication, Foundations of College Writing I, Foundations of College Writing II, Intro to Literature and Writing I.
Humanities and social science classes are Intro to Art, History of Europe to the Mid-17th Century, Intro to the Humanities, General Psychology and Intro to Sociology.
Science and math classes are Medical Terminology, Human Anatomy & Physiology II, Pre-Algebra, Intermediate Algebra and Technical Algebra & Trigonometry.
Computer classes are Intro to Computers, Small-Medium Business or ISP, and Server Infrastructure Administration.

New students must complete the application process, including orientation and placement testing, and October 1 is the application deadline. Admissions forms and information are online at: ashland.kctcs.edu/admissions.
