Available, General Education, ESL, ABE and more


The new College of the Desert (COD) Indio Campus will be opening February 24 for classes. College courses that COD has been offering in rented space in Indio for years will now be taught in the college’s own building designed specifically for educational purposes at 45524 Oasis Street.

COD is offering over 60 course sections in 24 different subjects at the Indio facility. A listing of the available classes at the Indio Campus is located on the website: Under Catalog & Schedules, look for the Spring 2014 Class Schedule and locate the link to the class listing for Indio.

English as a Second Language (ESL) will also be offered at the Indio Campus. Sessions for Foundations, Level 1 and 2 are from 8:30 a.m.-12:20 p.m., or 6-9:50 p.m. All classes are Monday through Thursday for 12 weeks beginning Feb. 24.

COD is offering courses in Adult Basic Education at the Indio Campus as well. A list of classes can be located on the website, click on Academic Programs, Adult Basic Education. 

Beginning this semester, all vehicles parked on the Indio college campus are required to display a COD parking permit. Permits are $20 each semester. To purchase your permit, go to, Student Services, Parking, Purchase Permit Online. For more information about purchasing a parking permit, contact the COD Bursar’s Office at 760-568-7510.

The new structure has 14 classrooms and a wet lab, a first for students attending classes in Indio. Most of the basic services that are offered at the Palm Desert campus will be available at the Indio facility. A grand opening is planned for February 28, at 1 p.m.

The COD Bookstore will be on-site Tuesday and Wednesday, Feb. 25 and 26 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. This gives students an opportunity to purchase their textbooks saving them a trip to the Palm Desert Campus.

To better serve students in the eastern valley, COD is now offering an associate degree program at the Indio Campus. Students who are prepared to take college-level English and math will be offered a two-year package of courses to enable them to complete an AA in liberal arts that will also satisfy the California State University (CSU) transfer requirements.

Classes at the Mecca/Thermal campus continue as well. Students at the east end of the valley have more options available to them as the course offerings have increased.

COD offers approximately two hundred late starting classes. For a full list of the late starting classes, visit, click on the Catalog & Schedules tab, locate the Spring Late Start Classes link under the Spring 2014 Class Schedule list.
