Onondaga Community College is ready to welcome its next group of “Weekend College” students! The program provides students the opportunity to pursue a college degree during times that work best with their schedules. Weekend College classes are held Friday nights (5:30-9:30 p.m.) and Saturday’s (9 a.m. to 1 p.m.) on the OCC campus. Financial Aid and scholarships are available for those who qualify.
Enrollment for fall 2019 is now open. Classes begin Friday, August 23. Prospective students will be required to take placement exams for math, English and reading. Students who perform well on their placement exams will be able to complete coursework in 18 months.
Four degree programs are being offered in fall 2019:
- Alcohol & Substance Abuse Counseling A.A.S.
- Business Administration, A.S.
- Criminal Justice, A.S.
- Early Childhood, A.A.S.
An Associate of Science (A.S.) degree is designed to prepare a student for transfer to a 4-year institution to pursue their bachelor’s degree. An Associate of Applied Science (A.A.S.) degree is a career program which prepares students for employment.
OCC’s partnership with SUNY Oswego will ensure students majoring in Business Administration or Criminal Justice a seamless transfer into a bachelor’s degree program which is offered through a combination of online and in-person classes at SUNY Oswego’s downtown Syracuse campus at Clinton Square. With this partnership, students can complete their associate and bachelor’s degrees at a SUNY price right here in Syracuse.
Prospective students interested in speaking with a college representative can do so by contacting OCC’s Student Recruitment office at (315) 498-2221 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
