Though the new year and the spring semester are now in full swing, it is still not too late to get back into the game academically at Southeastern Illinois College, thanks to the institution’s selection of mini-semester courses.

Mini-semester courses are available in a wide variety of areas of study, modes (online and on-campus) and duration. Courses vary in subject, such as Specific Software Application and Select Topics Literature. The length of the courses spans from classes lasting around four weeks to classes that run through May.

The agenda also includes online classes in both academic major and general education areas that could be attractive to traditional students who have found room to fit another course into their schedule, or have a specific course they need to finish before graduation or transfer. Online courses include American Government, Principals of Public Speaking, Keyboarding, Rhetoric and Composition I and II, Biofuels System Technology and Introduction to Theater.

For those looking for more immediate and career-focused educational experience, truck-driving courses are scheduled to run from March 16 through April 24. A Second eight-week evening Welding class also begins March 16.

Fitness and dance enthusiasts have options to choose from as well. Opportunities include beginning jazz and tap dance classes offered during the day at the main SIC campus in Harrisburg.

Students already enrolled at SIC may register for these classes on MySIC. Others who are interested can view a full listing of mini-semester courses, as well as registration contact information, at For further information, call 252-5400 ext. 2443.
