Spring semester classes begin Jan. 17. Depending on your status as a new or returning student, you can register for spring classes in person or by mail, fax and the Internet through Jan. 16.

Statistics show that students who begin their education at a two-year college before continuing their education at a four-year institution can save thousands of dollars in tuition, fees and other college-related costs. Based on the study, “Trends in College Pricing 2011,” released by the College Board Advocacy & Policy Center, the average cost in tuition and fees for a public four-year in-state college is $8,224.

That cost increases to $20,770 for a public four-year out-of-state college and to $28,500 for a private nonprofit four-year school. With Atlantic Cape’s tuition and fees averaging $3,150 per academic year (12 credits a semester), a student who attends two years at Atlantic Cape would save $10,148 off the cost of a public four-year in-state college and $50,700 off the cost of a private nonprofit four-year college.

The college accepts Visa, MasterCard, Discover and American Express. To register online or view an updated schedule of winter and spring courses, visit www.atlantic.edu. For more information, e-mail acccadmit@atlantic.edu, or call (609) 343-5000, 625-1111, ext. 5000, or 463-3958 in Cape May County.
