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

What makes the Weekend Degree Program different?

The Weekend Degree Program 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.

With enrollment limited to 25 learners in a prescribed course of study, the Weekend Degree Program is designed for your success. You will receive both personal and group support throughout your program, and you will have access to college resources to enhance your learning experience.

Participation in the program does require you to be ready for college-level English. College-level readiness in Mathematics is preferred however current enrollment in 089/090 or higher is accepted. 

Weekend Degree Program Curriculum

Your course of study is already determined for all eight (8) quarters of enrollment. While the program officially begins every fall and commences for 2 consecutive years (8 quarters/24 months) we do accept new students every quarter as space is available. If all program and graduation requirements are met, you will receive your Associate of Arts degree at the end of the second summer session. See the current course schedule for details.
