You may be asking yourself: “Is it too late to enroll in fall 2021 classes at community colleges or state colleges near me?” And the answer is no! Enrollment is still open at Raritan Valley Community College for our 10-week session starting September 29, and our seven-week session starting October 20. In addition to virtual learning, we are offering in-person classes this fall, with COVID-19 protocols in place to keep our community safe.
