Attend Open House for Catawba College's Evening Program
June 16, 2010;
Catawba College's School of Evening and Graduate Studies will sponsor an open house on Thursday, June 24, from 6:30-8:00 p.m. on campus in Ketner Hall, Room 108.
Prospective students will be given an overview of the evening program and financial aid opportunities. Two bachelor's degree programs are offered in the evening: Business Administration with concentrations in Management and Information Systems, and Birth-Kindergarten Education for community college graduates who have completed the A.A.S. degree with the Early Childhood Associate major.
Catawba's unique block format in the evening allows students to concentrate on one course at a time. Classes meet on Monday and Thursday evenings from 6:00-9:45 p.m. and one Saturday morning per month from 8:00-11:45 a.m. Students complete one course per month for 12 or more credit hours per semester. Tuition in the evening program is comparable to that of North Carolina public universities, and federal and state financial aid is available. To enroll in the program, students must be at least 21 years old or hold an associate's degree from a community college.
According to Dr. Edith Bolick, Dean of the School of Evening and Graduate Studies, "Many students are taking a positive approach to the current economic climate by completing their degrees or enrolling in college for the first time. Our graduates report that the personal attention in our classroom-based program and our one-course-per-month format have contributed to their successful degree completion."
