Published on: November 08, 2012

Students at Lone Star College-University Park can now earn one of three degrees simply by attending weekend classes. Beginning in the spring 2013 semester, LSC-University Park students will be able to earn an Associate of Arts degree in Business, Teaching or a general associate degree through the campus’ weekend college.

Weekend classes provide flexibility and alternate scheduling for students who work or have other commitments. Students can choose from online, face-to-face or hybrid classes. According to Mary Anne Figueroa, LSC-University Park operations manager, “Through our weekend college, you can go to school just one day a week on the weekend and still take a full load of classes.”

Weekend classes will be offered each semester beginning in the spring 2013 semester and during the summer term as well. Figueroa stated that all classes are guaranteed for students who pre-register. Registration began Nov.7.

“Today’s students need more flexibility in their scheduling. There are students of all ages and backgrounds attending classes here. This is just another example of how LSC-University Park continues to meet the needs of its students by offering a variety of traditional and non-traditional avenues for students to earn college credits.” Lawrence Brandyburg, vice president instruction and student services added.
