The San Diego Community College District announced Tuesday that summer classes will be offered for the first time since 2009.
More than 1,000 classes will be offered at City, Mesa, and Miramar colleges at $46 a unit—including numerous online courses, according to a district official.
San Diego Continuing Education will offer more than 2,000 free noncredit classes at its seven campuses in San Diego.
Officials said the district had to cut summer classes in recent years because of state funding reductions.
"After years budgetary belt-tightening, we take great pride in again offering summer courses that provide thousands of students the tools they need to get a timely, high-quality education, secure their degrees, and prepare for the workforce," said Rich Grosch, president of the district's Board of Trustees.
Classes in high-demand areas such as allied health, basic skills, hospitality and consumer sciences, and career technical studies will be among those being offered.
The primary summer session is set for June 16-Aug. 9, but three other sessions will be held May 27-June 28, June 9-Aug. 2, and June 30-Aug. 2.
Plans call for 436 summer courses at City College, 424 at Mesa College and 204 at Miramar College.
The summer class schedule is available online at www.sdccd.edu.
The deadline for new students to file an application for admission for summer and receive priority registration is April 30. Registration by appointment will be held May 12-23. Open registration begins May 27.
