MDC’s North Campus to Launch Weekend College Starting Spring 2017

Miami, Dec. 15, 2016 – Miami Dade Colleges (MDC) North Campus will launch its Weekend College program in January 2017, offering students a unique opportunity to complete their entire degree with weekend-only courses. Weekend College is open to both continuing and prospective MDC students.

Don’t let a busy life get in the way of your education and future goals. MDC North Campus’ Weekend College was designed to offer highly motivated students the opportunity to complete an Associates of Arts, Associate of Science or Bachelor Degree in Business during the weekend. The North Campus will host a special Registration Blitz on Wednesday and Thursday, Dec. 28 – 29, from 8 a.m. – 7 p.m. There will be additional information about Weekend College, opportunities to meet with an advisor, apply for financial aid and scholarships. Free and open to all.

“Our commitment is simple: to help all students achieve their academic goal. And, through this program we strive to serve a large segment of the student population who due to personal, professional, or other life’s commitment and challenges find it difficult adhering to a regular weekday class schedule,” said North Campus President, Dr. Malou C. Harrison. “If you are a highly motivated, disciplined student who is seeking for an alternate, flexible course schedule to facilitate your pathway to success, this is a great opportunity for you.”

MDC’s eight campuses and outreach centers offer more than 300 distinct degree pathways, including several baccalaureate degrees, associate in arts and science degrees, and numerous career training certificates leading to in-demand jobs.
