What is Weekend College?
With Weekend College at NHCC, you can choose to take classes during days, nights, weekends, online, or in-person, and create a schedule that works for you.
Weekend College courses are offered Friday nights, Saturdays, and with online and hybrid formats. Hybrid courses have some in-person classes and some online classes.
Weekend College Programs
The programs below can be completed entirely with weekend, online, and hybrid classes. You also have the option of taking classes in these programs during weekdays. Basically, you can mix and match to create a schedule that works for you.
The Business Transfer Pathway Associate of Science is designed for students who are interested in transferring after graduation to pursue a bachelor's degree or a professional degree in business, management, marketing, education, or training.
The Computer Science Transfer Pathway prepares students to enter the job market in information technology, computer programming, and software development; or to transfer to a related bachelor's degree program.
“The reason I chose Saturday class is that, first, it's an in-person class, which I love, and secondly, I don’t work on Saturdays. I like that most of the other students are working people, like me.”
