Only a few more weeks to register for the Second Start Spring at LC

For students not willing to wait months until the summer sessions or fall semester come around, Laredo College’s Second Start Spring provides the perfect opportunity to get ahead in their degree or career plan by taking classes this spring.


This accelerated eight-week session begins on March 8 and ends May 6. Students can take their pick of more than 20 basic core academic courses that will help them start or continue their college career and stay on track with their graduation or transfer plans. Financial aid is available for qualifying students, and classes must be paid before the first day of class.


Time is of the essence as there are limited spaces available for these courses. Students wishing to register are encouraged to begin the enrollment process as soon as possible. All classes will be online, and students who are currently taking classes in the traditional spring semester can also register for Second Start Spring courses and take them concurrently.


“Our Second Start initiative is an innovative concept conceived by Laredo College administrators with the goal of providing an opportunity for students to register for an intensive, shortened semester rather than having to wait for several months to take college courses,” Laredo College President Dr. Ricardo J. Solis said. “It was a successful venture that we kicked off last year during our fall semester with overwhelmingly positive results. Due to its success, we have decided to extend this opportunity to the spring as well to assist as many students as possible.”


Students enrolling at Laredo College will have the honor of attending the #1 community college in Texas, as named by Additionally, our award-winning programs reflect our faculty and staff’s commitment to academic excellence and student success.
