SANFORD - The holidays are almost here and spring - that is, the spring semester at Central Carolina Community College - follows shortly after.

CCCC will be closed from Monday, Dec. 23 through Wednesday, Jan. 1, so now is the time for new students to prepare to register for Spring 2014 classes.

Late registration for returning students and registration for new students takes place 9 a.m.-7 p.m. Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, Jan. 7-9, and 9 a.m.-noon Friday, Jan. 10, at the Dennis A. Wicker Civic Center, in Sanford, Chatham County Campus, in Pittsboro, and the Harnett County Campus, in Lillington. Classes start Monday, Jan. 13.

"We are just now finishing a busy and successful fall semester and look forward to another great semester in the spring," said Ken Hoyle, CCCC vice president of Student Services. "We are always interested in making the student experience at CCCC as convenient and pleasant as possible. I am extremely proud of how Student Services has successfully used technology to make the registration and other student processes de-centralized and student-friendly. Our students and their success are our greatest assets and we always want to reflect that."
