Virginia Western's Weekend College is an innovative program designed to meet the educational needs of adult learners. Weekend College is intended for students whose other responsibilities prevent them from attending classes during the week, who want to accelerate their progress toward a degree, or who desire a more flexible schedule for completing their coursework. Through a combination of weekend courses and distance learning classes, students enrolled in Weekend College can complete the requirements that lead to an A.S. degree in General Studies or Social Sciences. These curricula are specifically designed for students who want to transfer to a four-year college or university.
Each Weekend College class meets on alternating Saturdays from 8:15 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. or 11:30 a.m. to 2:15 p.m. - half the number of hours that day and evening normally meet. To maintain the academic quality of these courses, instructors supplement classroom instruction with additional materials that students study independently between class meetings. Because of the format for weekend courses, attendance at each of the eight class meetings is crucial for student success, as are class participation and the completion of assignments between classes.
