The mission of Weekend College is to increase the educational opportunities to the citizens of northeastern Indiana by offering regular credit courses and programs on weekends.


The goals of Weekend College, in order of priority, are:

  1. To increase participation in higher education, especially among students whose employment and domestic responsibilities necessitate alternative scheduling
  2. To identify degrees and certificate programs that will be made available entirely on weekends, and to offer a schedule of classes that enables students to make steady progress in these programs each semester
  3. To offer a schedule of classes that meets the intellectual and professional-advancement needs of nondegree students with specific career interests
  4. To increase the scheduling options for enrolled traditional and other students.


Weekend college consists of all credit courses and programs offered on-campus Friday evenings (beginning 4:30 p.m.), Saturdays, and Sundays.


The schedule of classes for Weekend College is based upon student needs and interests that are consistent with the goals expressed above and that have been identified through surveys among prospective enrollees and enrollment experience.
