South Texas College offers flexible educational opportunities for Students.

A mini-mester is a short semester, within which a student can complete a course. The length of mini-mesters can range from 5 weeks to 14 weeks.  

  • The mini-mesters have been developed to serve students who have demanding work schedules and or family responsibilities that make it difficult for them to enroll for Fall or Spring general (16 weeks) semesters.
  • Mini-mesters make it possible to complete the same course and receive the same quality of instructions in fewer weeks.
  • Some of mini-mester courses are offered in the traditional classroom setting and others via the Internet.
  • Students from Starr and Hidalgo counties have access to Mini-mester classes.
