2017-2018 General Catalog

2017-2018 Calendar


South Plains College’s academic calendar for the Levelland Campus, SPC Reese Center and SPC Lubbock Center, and the SPC Plainview Center is built around fall and spring semesters, winter and spring interim sessions, and multiple summer sessions. The fall and spring semesters are 16 weeks in length. Summer sessions are five weeks and 10 weeks in length with classes meeting Monday through Thursday.  The winter and spring interim sessions are offered in an intensive format for a short period of time between the fall and spring semester breaks; therefore, students are limited to one course per interim. Online registration opens in mid-April for the spring interim session, summer sessions and fall semester, and in mid-November for the winter interim session and spring semester.

The college’s calendar for 2017-2018 is listed below. More detailed semester calendars and registration information can be found on the college’s web site at www.southplainscollege.edu.
