Welcome to Merritt College ENVMT

Spring 2017 Course offerings
(NOTE: All below courses run from 1/23 to 5/26/2017)

ALERT!
The ENVMT courses being taught at high school campuses are still intact and scheduled to run, but the three ENVMT courses that were scheduled to be taught on the Merritt campus have been canceled due to low enrollment. We are sorry for this inconvenience and strongly encourage all who are interested in taking any class to sign up as early as possible as early enrollment numbers are what guarantees that a class reaches the minimum number for class viability. We are working on increasing enrollment numbers for this program and encourage you to return next semester (and enroll early!) when we plan to offer classes and keep them scheduled!
