By Jeanné Clark

THATCHER, AZ—Eastern Arizona College’s Spring 2009 class schedule was mailed to every home in Greenlee County last month, and it is also available on EAC’s website at www.eac.edu. EAC offers college classes at Morenci and Duncan High Schools throughout the semester for students who are looking to continue their education, update their skills, or learn a new craft. Classes begin January 7, 2009.

Two registration sessions will be held for students interested in attending EAC. The first will be on Monday, January 5, from 6-9 p.m. in the Duncan High School library, and the second will be held on Tuesday, January 6, from 6:30-8:30 p.m. at the Morenci High School-EAC office. Registration can also be completed over the phone by contacting the EAC Records and Registration Office at (800) 678-3808, ext. 8270, or online at www.eac.edu.

Placement testing is required for all first-time math and English students. A special Greenlee County placement testing session is scheduled for 4 p.m. on Monday, January 5, at EAC’s Morenci High School location; however, other placement testing opportunities can be arranged by contacting Diana Sumpter, EAC’s Morenci coordinator, at (928) 865-5559 or the EAC Counseling Department at (800) 678-3808, ext. 8253.

“A college education can prepare you with advanced skills that will make you a more favorable job candidate, boost your morale, give you new reason to be excited about the future, and enable you to better your station in life,” says EAC dean of Greenlee County Programs, Harry Swanson. Swanson also reminds students that in addition to its traditional “classroom setting” offerings this spring, EAC is offering 40 online courses from 17 academic areas, providing Greenlee County residents with a wider selection of classes with greater flexibility than ever before.

Those with questions can call the Greenlee Extension Office at (928) 865-5559; Diana Sumpter at (928) 865-2222; or in Duncan, Donald Merrell at (928) 359-2116.
