Short-term class options Spring 2023

Posted On: 11/15/22

For the spring 2023 semester, Kankakee Community College will offer a range of short-term classes – including six transferrable classes that are just four weeks long. 

"The addition of four-week classes in Liberal Arts and Sciences will allow students to design schedules that respect their life-school balance," said Jennifer Hays Huggins, KCC's dean of Liberal Arts and Sciences. "Taking one class every four weeks in the 16-week semester equates to full-time enrollment, which gets students that much closer to reaching their academic goals, particularly students who only had the time previously to attend part-time."

Spring 2023 classes are offered between Jan. 9 and May 5. The four-week courses being offered are all online, and can be taken back-to-back. They are:

  • English I - Jan. 9 to Feb. 3, course number ENGL 1613.W06
  • English II - Feb. 6 to March 3, course number ENGL 1623.W06
  • Introductory Speech - Feb. 6 to March 3, course number COMM 1553.W06
  • American Government - March 13 to April 7, course number PLSC 1513.W06
  • Lifespan Developmental Psychology - March 13 to April 7, course number PSYC 2553.W06
  • Introduction to Humanities - April 10 to May 5, course number HUMS 1513.W06

In addition to the four-week online classes, KCC is also offering a variety of other short-term options, including classes that meet for 8-weeks and 12-weeks.
