Onondaga Community College is starting Weekend College! The accelerated program will give students the opportunity to earn a two-year associate degree in just one year. Weekend College classes will be 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. Classes begin Friday, August 24.
The first degree program being offered through OCC’s Weekend College is Business Administration, a major which provides students with the highly-valued knowledge and skills necessary to be successful in a variety of positions.
“Weekend College is ideally suited for students who are balancing work, family and personal responsibilities, allowing them to be on-campus two days per week and to complete an associate degree in only one year through an accelerated year-round calendar. With so many people in our community looking for a convenient, affordable way to quickly get into or move up in the business field, the Business Administration degree from OCC is a great fit,” said OCC President Dr. Casey Crabill.
In addition, OCC’s partnership with SUNY Oswego will ensure students 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. OCC is planning to add more majors pending approval by SUNY and the State Education Department.
