Summer classes are returning to the San Diego Community College District for 2014. More than 400 classes will be available for City College students and the schedule will be available April 15.

There will be four summer sessions scheduled: two five-week sessions running from May 27 to June 28 and June 30 to Aug. 2, and two eight-week sessions from June 9 to Aug. 2 and June 16 to Aug. 9.

The administration cautions that these classes will fill quickly so students should enroll as soon as possible. Priority registration will begin May 12 and open registration will start May 27.

Students protested cuts in classes in the last few years as the state endured severe economic woes.

“Nobody here, or in the district, wanted to stop the classes, so we all couldn’t be more happy to have the classes back,” stated Public Information Officer Heidi Bunkowske.

It is estimated that the district will recoup about 80 percent of the classes lost in the 2011 cuts. “Pretty good for the first time back,” added Bunkowske.

The schedule will be available online April 15 at www.schedule.sdccd.edu, and students can apply and register at www.studentweb.sdccd.edu.
