May three-week mini-term is NHC’s solution to “having your cake and eating it too”

College students sometimes struggle with wanting to take college credit during their summer vacation and having enough free time to enjoy the summer break. To help with that dilemma, North Harris College offers a unique 3-week mini-mester schedule during May.

“From May 13 to May 31, students attend class Monday through Friday for approximately four hours a day,” says Dr. Cher Brock, NHC’s associate dean for instructional management. “By the end of three weeks, students have earned three credit hours of a required college course.”

Course offerings for the mini-mester include: Art, Business, Economics, English, Government, Mathematics, Music, Philosophy, Psychology, Sociology, Spanish I and Speech.

The summer 2002 mini-mester begins May 13 and NHC’s regular six-week summer I session starts June 3.
Registration for summer credit classes is currently in progress. Early registration is recommended for best choice of classes.

The office of admissions is open for registration: Monday through Thursday, 9 a.m. to 7 p.m.; Friday and Saturday 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. For registration information, contact the office of admissions at 281-618-5410 or send e-mail to:

The college offices will be closed March 29 through 31 for spring holidays.
