Weekend College (WC) provides you with an opportunity to earn a quality education and a Queens College undergraduate degree either by taking all your classes in Weekend College or by becoming a flexible scheduler; mixing WC with day and evening classes; attending part time or full time; taking classes in the summer and winter sessions as well as in the fall and spring semesters; and enjoying both traditional classes in state-of-the-art classrooms and fully online or blended classes mixed to suit your own needs. Within Weekend College, you will find a traditional academic environment with a strong, student-accessible faculty; a full component of student-focused academic and general support services; open libraries and student general-use computer labs; and interesting and eclectic peers to provide mutual support.
