Designed for the working adult, Weekend College offers the opportunity for full-time study while a full-time working schedule is maintained. Courses are scheduled on a quarterly system. Each of the four sessions is ten weeks long and students attend class every other weekend. At least one of the five instructional weekends is a distance learning weekend. Through Weekend College, a student may earn up to six credits per session of 24 credits per year. This schedule allows a student to continue full-time employment, maintain family responsibilities and other pursuits, and earn an undergraduate degree.
The program is highly individualized, and personal counseling is provided throughout. This one-to-one academic counseling assures that each student obtains accurate information about transfer credit, credit for learning that has been gained outside of formal educational settings, and about the challenge examination programs available. A low student-faculty ratio, plus a highly dedicated and motivated faculty, provides a cohesive and supportive environment in which to pursue educational goals.
