Motlow College will close for the Christmas and New Year holidays at 4:30 p.m. on Dec. 24, and will reopen on Jan. 2, according to college officials. The closing applies to computer labs, libraries and other facilities at all Motlow College sites, which include the Moore County campus and the Fayetteville, McMinnville and Smyrna centers. Spring classes begin on Jan. 17. Students enrolled at Motlow this semester can register now for spring 2013 classes and are encouraged to do so, said Greer Alsup, director of admissions and records at the college. “Registering now will increase students’ chances of getting their preferred classes and schedules,” she said. “We also encourage new and readmit students to submit applications for admission or readmission as soon as possible because they can’t register for classes until admission requirements have been met.” New and readmit students must submit applications for admission or readmission by Jan. 9, with online applications accepted until midnight on that date. Online applications may be accessed from the “Apply Now” button on the college website. Students interested in earning high school and college credits for courses in the Dual Enrollment Program and those enrolling in the ACE Program (Adult College Express) also are required to apply by Jan. 9.
