Davidson County Community College to Expand Evening, Saturday Course Offerings this Fall

June 30, 2014 – Davidson County Community College is expanding evening and Saturday course offerings this fall to support the needs of students who find it difficult to enroll in traditional daytime courses due to full-time employment, family responsibilities and other scheduling conflicts.

The more than 60 sections of college credit courses include a broad range of classes including English, communications, biology, humanities and psychology. Students may receive credit toward completion of a certificate, diploma or associate degree for courses completed and prepare for transfer to a four-year college or entry into a career field.

“Many of the citizens the college serves have expressed a need for more flexibility in scheduling, and we’re responding to that need by offering these evening and weekend course options,” says Jeannine Woody, Vice President, Academic Programs and Services. “We want to support all students in achieving their educational and career goals.”

The majority of the courses are delivered in traditional, face-to-face classroom settings, with some hybrid courses that include both online and classroom sessions. Evening classes generally begin after 4 p.m. and extend as late as 9 p.m.

Students interested in enrolling in these courses can complete the college’s admissions and enrollment process online at www.davidsonccc.edu/admissions. They may also meet with an enrollment adviser in the Mendenhall Building on the Davidson Campus or in the Administration Building on the Davie Campus in Mocksville.

Founded in 1963, Davidson County Community College is noted for its quality educational programs and services. As one of 58 institutions within the North Carolina Community College System, DCCC offers studies in more than 50 degree programs. A fully-accredited, multi-campus college, DCCC celebrated its 50th anniversary in 2013 and is looking forward to serving students in Davidson and Davie counties for many years to come. The college is committed to developing minds, inspiring imaginations, and preparing students for enhanced career and educational opportunities within a changing global environment.
