Prospective Students

Weekend College

If you are looking to re-energize your career, enhance your earning power, or get a jump-start after being out of the workforce, then Weekend College may be right for you!

What is Weekend College?

Our unique Friday/Saturday accelerated schedule incorporates online courses, allowing you the flexibility to work full-time, attend to family obligations and earn your degree in just 16 months.

What if I’m not sure that I can take classes continuously for 16 months?

That’s OK. If you need to skip a semester for whatever reason, you can do so. You can even take classes offered during the week, if those classes are a better fit for your schedule. The only issue is that these types of changes could mean it will take longer than 16 months to complete your degree.
