The Weekend Degree Program is The Next Step at Clark College

Clark's Weekend Degree Program:  Flexible learning for serious adult learners

Weekend Degree Curriculum

The Weekend Degree is designed for students interested in earning an Associate of Arts degree in a flexible learning environment. Completion of the program prepares students for transfer to most bachelor degree programs at public four-year institutions in Washington and Oregon.


How Do Weekend Degree Classes Work?
The classes are taught in a hybrid format. The majority of class will be spent in an online learning environment, however, designated meetings in a traditional classroom setting are scheduled either Friday night or Saturday during the day at least once a month/three times per quarter. These meetings are mandatory and missing them can adversely affect your grade. 

What Degree can I get in the Weekend Degree Program?
Weekend Degree classes lead to the Associate of Arts General Transfer DTA degree. Currently, not all classes required for this degree are available in the Weekend Degree format. You can supplement with fully online, hybrid, or face-to-face classes to complete the degree. 

Do I need a computer?
The majority of the coursework for the Weekend Degree Program is completed in an online environment. To be most successful in this program, it is recommended you have the following:
  • Access to a reliable computer with high speed or DSL Internet connectivity. Specific technical requirements for online courses can be found on the Technical Requirements page.
  • Basic computer skills including: keyboarding, Internet, email, and word-processing
If you need to purchase a computer you have the option to make your purchase through the Clark College Bookstore.  However, you are not required to purchase your computer through Clark College to participate in the Weekend Degree Program.

Do I need to apply to the Weekend Degree Program?
As of Spring 2015, applications are no longer needed to take Weekend Degree classes. You may register for these classes as you would any other Clark College class. 

When do Weekend Degree Program classes start?

Weekend Degree classes follow the same academic calendar as all other Clark College classes. Classes begin online  the first day of the quarter.
