Published: October 2, 2007

New and returning students at Thomas Nelson Community College still have the opportunity to start or continue their education this fall. A new accelerated eight-week class session starts on Saturday, October 13 with classes being offered at the Hampton campus, the Historic Triangle campus and the recently opened Southeast Higher Education Center in Newport News located at 5720 Marshall Avenue in the Achievable Dream Middle School and High School.

An Open House for the Southeast Higher Education Center is scheduled for Thursday, October 4, 2007 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m.

In the accelerated eight-week session, TNCC is offering more than 70 day, evening, weekend and online courses. At the Southeast Higher Education Center students can take advantage of such classes as Introduction to Computer Applications and Concepts and work toward earning a career certificate or starting an associate degree program. Based on the public’s input, the College extended academic offerings at the Southeast Center for its eight-week class session to include an array of classes which are as follows:

There are ninety-five enrollments at the Southeast Higher Education Center where TNCC began offering six classes in August.

The collaboration between TNCC and AAD directly corresponds with the College’s goal to continually recruit, retain, and graduate high caliber students; thereby enabling them to “Explore. Excel. Succeed.” The new Southeast Higher Education Center provides yet another opportunity for TNCC to change the future of the students and communities it serves on the Peninsula.
