Ukiah, CA - On Monday August 18, Mendocino College begins their fall semester with a wide-range of offerings in Ukiah designed to meet community needs.

A new course in political science, POL 105: Elections & Voting Behavior, is ideal for this election year.  In addition, the College will continue to offer many short-term and late-start classes in subject areas from Mathematics to Computer Science to Public Safety.

Along with improvements in offerings, the college has been working throughout the summer to upgrade facilities using Measure W funding.  The fitness lab will open with all-new equipment and students can register in PEG 80 or PEG 280 for unlimited access to the lab. 

All student services offices, including Counseling and Financial Aid, have been renovated to increase student access.  The Financial Aid office will be adding night hours for Fall 2008.  A new computer lab is planned for Spring 2009.

Open registration continues through the first week of classes. For registration information and information on more class offerings, consult the Mendocino College Fall Schedule, available on campus or online at
