Open House in Kannapolis for Catawba College's Evening Program
July 8, 2010
Catawba College's School of Evening Studies will sponsor an open house on Thursday, July 22, from 5:30-7:30 p.m. in the old Cabarrus Bank Building at 201 West Avenue in Kannapolis. Prospective students will be given an overview of the program and financial aid opportunities.
Courses are open to transfer students as well as individuals with no previous college work. Two bachelor's degree programs are offered in the evening program located on the college's Salisbury campus: 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.
The 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 our classroom-based program and our one-course-per-month block format have contributed to their successful degree completion."
