The Weekend College, located at UDM’s Outer Drive Campus, is an innovative, convenient scheduling option for adults whose work and family responsibilities are incompatible with traditional course times. Friday evening classes are held from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. and Saturday classes are held from 9:00 a.m. to noon and 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. Weekend courses run in an accelerated semester that is scheduled for 10 weeks with an 11th week exam period. The 10-week schedule also permits students to enroll in an intensive course for three consecutive weekends in December and April. Core curriculum requirements are also offered on the weekends, allowing the student to complete an entire degree by attending weekend classes.

Summer semester in the Weekend College is scheduled for student convenience. There are two separate seven-week terms with classes held on Saturdays from 8:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. and from 1:00 p.m. to 5:30 p.m.

A high standard of academic quality is maintained in the Weekend College; degree requirements, coursework, learning objectives and scope of material are the same as for day and evening programs. Students may complete their degree in about the same time as other students who attend day or evening classes.
