The First Semester Matters
First Four is designed to give you a solid start to your college experience. We've identified courses that you can use for your general education and transfer requirements. All classes will be held online, some with set meeting times. You will be a fulltime student and you will have a productive semester.
This is a new program for a limited number of participants. If First Four sounds like a great way to begin college, let's get started. Questions? Call 760.634.7876 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
