What’s new for San Diego Community College District’s fall semester?
SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – Classes Begin August 19 for 53,000 Students at San Diego City, Mesa, and Miramar Colleges!
An abundance of new certificate and degree programs from cybersecurity to fermentation management, new centers for veterans and foster youth, and an expanding, tuition-free San Diego Promise await an estimated 53,000 students at San Diego City, Mesa, and Miramar colleges when the new academic year begins Aug. 19. San Diego Continuing Education, which provides everything from free career training programs to ESL and citizenship classes, begins its new academic year Sept. 3.
Among this year’s highlights is the SDCCD’s rapidly expanding San Diego Promise, which waives tuition for all first-time, full-time students while providing the support and services they need to succeed. Approximately 3,100 San Diego Promise students are expected this year, a 55 percent increase over the 2018-19 academic year, when about 2,000 enrolled.
Chancellor of the San Diego Community College School District, Constance Carroll, told us what to expect for the upcoming 2019 Fall semester.
