Helping Students Get an Affordable Education with Financial Aid and FREE Resources
Fall 2023 midterm classes at Compton College begin October 14 and there is still time for students to enroll. Or, for students already enrolled, the midterm offers a great way to pick up a needed class or two! Students are encouraged to register for the Fall 2023 midterm as soon as possible.
Enrolled students have access to a complete menu of support services to help them succeed. All students enrolled during the 2023-2024 school year will receive a FREE student parking permit, one FREE meal per day at the campus’ Everytable Café, and may apply for a FREE Metro GoPass for transportation. In addition, Compton College provides financial, academic, and technical support for those in need such as financial aid, tutoring, book vouchers, free laptop and Wi-Fi hotspot loans, and referrals for those with housing and food insecurity.
The second eight-week fall classes include a variety of subjects including English, mathematics, ESL, cosmetology, human development, history, computer information systems, psychology, sociology, nursing, HVAC, welding, machine tool technology, and more.

Midterm classes are great for helping students complete a needed class requirement to reach their education goals in a shorter timeframe, take an elective class of interest, make up a class, or to retake a class that was previously dropped.
“I have registered for two fall midterm classes, English 103 critical thinking/composition and a dance class,” said Crystal Moore, who is the current Associated Student Government president. “Since I am a nursing and psychology major, I wanted to take my more challenging science classes at the beginning of the semester and add a couple of subjects that are easier for me during the midterm.”
