Full-Time Fridays accepting 2nd cohort to begin in Spring

Virginia Western Community College’s Full-Time Fridays program will accept its second cohort this Spring Semester, allowing students to earn a college degree while balancing priorities to their work, families and life in general.  Full-Time Fridays will give those students the opportunity to earn an Associate of Science Degree in General Studies in just two years through on-campus courses on Fridays, coupled with distance (online) learning.

With Full-Time Fridays, students will be able to take all their courses from 8 a.m.- 6:30 p.m. on Fridays and still be able to manage obligations to their work, family and themselves. The typical course load of 60 credit hours will be spread over Spring and Fall semesters for two years. Full-Time Fridays students will complete a set of required and elective courses like any other Virginia Western student, and tuition costs will be identical.

Students can begin enrolling in Full-Time Fridays for the Spring Semester on Nov. 12, and the first day of Friday classes will be Jan. 7, 2013.
