MCCC Offers Evening Weekend College This Fall


7-16-08


WEST WINDSOR, N.J. -- Mercer County Community College has developed an Evening Weekend College to accommodate adult learners who work full time or care for young children during the day. Beginning with the fall semester on Aug. 25, the program offers associate degrees in Business Administration and Liberal Arts that can be completed in two years by attending classes in the evening, on weekends and online. Most courses are 15 weeks in duration, with some seven to eight-week accelerated classes and some six-week summer classes.

"We saw a clear need for a schedule of classes that would accommodate students who cannot take daytime classes," said Dean of Liberal Arts Robin Schore. "These two majors are among Mercer's most popular."

Both degree programs are designed for students who plan to transfer to four-year colleges or universities. Mercer holds transfer agreements with many colleges throughout the country, and dual admissions agreements with Montclair State University , the New Jersey Institute of Technology, Penn State Abington, Rider University, Rutgers University, Saint Peter's College, The College of New Jersey, and Wilmington University.

The Business Administration program is designed for students who plan to earn a business-related bachelor's degree. Admission requires a high school diploma or its equivalent. A strong background in mathematics is recommended. For more information, contact Student Advocate Dee Smith-Johns, Division of Business and Technology, at johnsd@mccc.edu or call 609.570.3449.

The Liberal Arts program prepares students to transfer in fields such as English, history, humanities, journalism, foreign languages, pre-law, literature, psychology, sociology, political science, philosophy and education. Students intending to transfer to a particular college should work with an advisor or Mercer's Transfer Services office early in their course of study. For more information, contact Student Advocate Marge Archer, Division of Liberal Arts, at archerm@mccc.edu or 609.570.3268.

Mercer County Community College offers assistance with financial aid, free tutoring and academic advisement. The fall semester begins August 25.
