CVCC Adds “Pirate 13” Session to Fall Class Options

PHENIX CITY, AL —Chattahoochee Valley Community is offering an additional fall session, “Pirate 13” to accommodate both current and prospective students. So, if you missed registering for fall classes, there’s still time. The Pirate 13 session will offer classes for 13 weeks beginning September 13. In addition, the College continues to offer Term II, sometimes referred to as a mini-term, courses, for an 8-week period.

“COVID has affected a lot of people’s situations,” said Dr. Sherri Taylor, Dean of Students and Campus Services. “There are people who have lost jobs or may want to change careers or move upward in their current positions. The pandemic is impacting our livelihoods, and many people are reevaluating how to support their families. Also, there is additional support available for students at this time due to the effects of COVID-19 on the economy, and we want to provide every opportunity for students to make this setback a COVID comeback.”

Taylor added that some students who recently graduated from high school may have wanted to attend a 4-year institution, but things didn’t work out for various reasons. “CVCC is a great option to get a quality education at a lower cost, take basic courses, earn a degree, and transfer to a 4-year institution.”

“Pirate 13 or Term II sessions are ideal for students for a variety of reasons,” said Dr. Chantae Calhoun, Dean of Instruction. “Whether a student needs to take a prerequisite for a course needed in an upcoming semester, or wants to take a course for advancement closer to degree completion, these are good options.” 

Current and potential students may schedule an appointment for registration by calling Amanda Gamble at 334-291-4998 or emailing her at
