SIC's Mini-Semester Offers More Opportunities to Take Classes

August 26, 2014

Though the fall semester is now in full swing, it is still not too late to get back into the game academically at Southeastern Illinois College, thanks to the institution’s slate of mini-semester courses.

Mini-semester courses are available in a wide variety of areas of study, modes (online and on-campus) and duration. Courses vary in subject, such as Rhetoric and Composition, Specific Software Application and First Aid and CPR. The length of the courses spans from classes lasting around four weeks to classes that run through the end of December.

The offerings also include online classes in both academic major and general education areas that could be attractive to traditional students who have found room to fit another course into their schedule, or have a specific course they need to finish before graduation or transfer. Online courses include Macroeconomics and American Government.

For those looking for more immediate and career-focused educational experience, truck-driving courses are scheduled to run from Sept. 8 through Oct. 17 and Oct. 27 through Dec. 5. Second eight week evening Welding classes begin Oct. 14.

Fitness enthusiasts have options to choose from as well. They include aerobic fitness offerings in Carmi, with early morning and evening time slots, as well as ballet classes offered during the day at the main SIC campus in Harrisburg.

Students already enrolled at SIC may register for these classes on MySIC. Others who are interested can view a full listing of mini-semester courses, as well as registration contact information, at For further information, call 252-5400 ext. 2443.
