RESERVE — River Parishes Community College has announced it will hold a four-week long, online-only summer “Mini-Mester” beginning June 29. Each three credit-hour course will be $399, with tuition and fees included. This price is a 29 percent discount from the normal cost of a three credit-hour course at RPCC.

The courses being offered during the “Mini-Mester” have been specifically selected as the best courses for the expedited, online-only format. Each course is fully transferable to all four-year public schools in Louisiana. The courses being offered are: Techniques of Speech SPCH 1200, Introduction to Psychology PSYC 2010, College Algebra MATH 1100, Physical Science I PHSC 1010, General Biology I BIOL 1010 and Macroeconomics ECON 2010.

RPCC’s Interim Vice Chancellor of Academic Affairs, Dr. Emily Campbell, said, “We hope that this first ever ‘Mini-Mester’ will provide students with the opportunity to earn fully transferable credits at a reduced price in a convenient online format. The faculty members teaching these courses are some of the best at RPCC. Students enrolled in or planning to start bachelor’s degree programs at Louisiana four-year universities can pick up credits that will transfer.In addition, current RPCC students can complete a course at a cost lower than what will be charged for the same course in the fall.”
