MERIDIAN —     Registration is going on now for the Second Intensive Fall Semester at East Mississippi Community College. What is an intensive semester? For students with the discipline and the desire, it’s a way of taking college-credit classes over a shorter period of time, mid-October through mid-December. Financial aid and scholarships are still available.

    “Intensive ‘mini-terms’ are a great opportunity for our current students, or students from the local universities, to pick up a class and not fall behind,” said EMCC Recruiting Coordinator Michael Black. “It's a chance to get a class out of the way in, basically, eight weeks. And remember, our classes transfer anywhere."

    Here’s a look at the options for Intensive Semester students:

    On-campus classes: Traditional, on-campus classes begin Monday, Oct. 14. The deadline to register is Friday, Oct. 11. The last day of regular classes is Tuesday, Dec. 10. Final exams are Dec. 11-12. On-campus classes will be offered at the Golden Triangle and Scooba campuses, as well as the college’s extensions at Naval Air Station Meridian and Columbus Air Force Base.
