Registration is open for fall classes at Spoon River College that begin August 21, as well as registration for an interim class that runs from July 31 to August 16. The interim class is English Composition 101, and will have both in-class and online components.

“Students wanting to get a head start could complete the English 101 interim class, and then be ready to take English 102 class during the regular fall semester, getting both of those required classes done in just one semester instead of two,” said Holly Norton, vice president of educational and student services.

Interim classes are worth the same number of credit hours as regular 16-week classes, and are also offered during the spring and summer semesters.

The first steps in registering for classes are completing an admission form and taking the COMPASS assessment test (or have official ACT scores). Both the admission application and testing are free. The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) should also be completed in order to receive federal financial aid if eligible. The final step is making an advising appointment to register for classes.

Additional information about the admission process can be found at under the Admissions Tab. Advisors can be contacted by emailing or by calling call (309)647-6400 in Canton, (309)543-4413 in Havana, (309)837-6069 in Macomb, and (217)322-6060 in Rushville.

The payment deadline for the fall semester is August 1. Students must have their tuition paid in full by that date or be enrolled in the automatic installment payment plan.
