ABINGDON, VA – Enrollment is underway for Virginia Highlands Community College’s 10-week general education courses that begin Thursday, Feb. 14, 2019. The 10-week courses, known as the Take 10 Program, include courses in English, math, biology, and other general education subjects.

“If one of your New Year’s resolutions is to get back on track with your education, then you’re not too late to begin this semester,” said VHCC’s Stacy E. Thomas, vice president of Instruction & Student Services. “Our 10-week courses are a great option for students who may not have been ready to begin when our regular semester started or for students who decide to add an additional course later.”

Take 10 courses are offered completely online or through a hybrid of both online and on-campus class sessions. The courses cover the same content as the semester-long courses but move at a faster pace and may require more out-of-class time to complete. 

Regular tuition rates apply and financial aid is still available. 

For a complete listing of Spring 2019 courses offered, please visit or call VHCC Student Services at (276) 739-2438.
