Block I, which runs between August 8 to October 8, includes Principles of Accounting, Organization and Management, African-American History, Introduction to Classic Jazz, Intermediate Spanish I, and Business and Professional Communication.  Block II, which runs between October 10-December 17, include Principles of Accounting II, Foundation Drawing, African-American History, Introduction to Classic Jazz, Voice and Diction, and Communication Ethics.

 Fall Semester classes, which run Aug. 30-Dec. 17, include Worlds of Art, Computer Graphic Art, Science in Elementary School, Shakespeare, American Since 1865, Honors Colloquium, Music Elementary Teachers, Teach and Learn Music, Scuba, Principles Practices & Theory of Public Relations, Education Psychology, Understanding the Bible, Foundations of Special Education, and Journalism I & II.
