NCTA summer classes begin June 12, register today

CURTIS, Neb. — Registration is open for 2017 summer session courses at the Nebraska College of Technical Agriculture in Curtis.

Classes begin June 12 at the NCTA campus with two classes offered online, said Jennifer McConville, NCTA associate dean.

“This is a prime opportunity for our students, community members and others to pick up a few hours of college credits to apply to a degree or certificate program,” McConville said.

Cost is $121 per credit hour, and registration is open to existing and new students.

“The summer session might be an ideal time for someone in our region who works full-time to enroll in a night class on software productivity in Microsoft Office, for example, or take an online class which better suits their work schedule,” McConville said.
