BASE is Hosting:
Urban College will offer dedicated BASE sections that meet Monday - Thursday from 10:00 am-1:00 pm. These classes will be on-line; however, students can utilize the BASE classroom and ZOOM into their courses from there.
The following is a listing of BASE courses: SOC202 – Cultural Aspects of Families and Children, SOC203 – Law, Justice and Society, PRO101GS – Becoming a Master Student, and HUS103-Introduction to Human Services.
The cost of tuition is very low or no cost to many eligible students. Also, Urban College is part of the Mayor’s Tuition-Free Community College program. Please note that there are funds available for undocumented students, which is huge!
