Classes open for spring, mini-mester

Executive Editor

Registration for the 2013 Spring Semester and the Christmas mini-semester opens Monday, Nov. 4 for current students.

Students who are TSI complete, meaning they require no developmental courses, and have grades posted, may register themselves online beginning at 6 a.m. First time in-college students this fall who do not have final grades for the semester will not be able to register themselves online.

On the KC website, locate the tab titled “Available Courses” to view courses and the space available.

Registration opens Nov. 11 for new and transfer students or students returning to KC after taking a semester or more off.

All first-time students or students who are currently enrolled in developmental courses must register with an adviser or counselor.

Faculty advisers are available by appointment on both the Kilgore and Longview campuses and will advise from Nov. 4 through November 26.

If a student is receiving financial aid and taking a Christmas mini-semester, the money will come out of their spring financial aid funds. Many students who struggle with finance also start selling notes online.  The payment deadline is Wednesday, Dec. 4. Students who have not paid or have financial aid in place will have their schedules dropped Dec. 5.

Web registration reopens 6 a.m. on Friday, Dec. 6 until midnight, Jan. 8 for spring classes.

The next payment deadline after Dec. 4 is Wednesday, Jan. 8.

The counseling centers will open registration again Dec. 6 – Dec. 11 in Kilgore and Longview.

The Longview Counseling Center will make appointments and take walk-ins, but walk-ins need to come early and be prepared to wait.

“We ask students to make appointments for the Counseling Center in Kilgore. We will take students who don’t have appointments if there is an spot open,” said Pam Gatton, director of counseling and testing. “Appointments are filling up, so students need to make an appointment soon.”

Late registration will be Wednesday, Jan. 8 from 8 a.m. – 6 p.m. by walk-in only in Kilgore and Longview.

The Christmas mini will begin on Dec. 16. The three-week classes end Jan. 3 and the four-week classes end Jan. 10.

The payment deadline for the Christmas mini is midnight Dec. 4. Students must be paid prior to class on the first class day.

Late fees apply to students who register or pay on the first class day.
