Registration for LSC-CyFair's evening and weekend program is now under way
Lone Star College-CyFair's evening and weekend program offers professionals the opportunity to fit classes into their schedule, and registration for the summer II session is now under way.
"Life doesn't just occur between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m., and thankfully, neither does college," said LSC-CyFair's Dean of Academic Affairs Dr. Michel Rodriguez-Zuch in a press release. "Through our evening and weekend college program, students don't have to choose between work, family, other responsibilities and school."
Classes are offered between 4-10:30 p.m. Monday through Friday and beginning at 8 a.m. Saturdays. Other options include online or hybrid classes, which are a combination of on campus and online instruction. Students can also take advantage of campus resources including tutoring, the library, bookstore and Cyber Café.
"The flexibility in class times and affordability, combined with an excellent staff and an outstanding commitment to community partnerships, is what makes our program so unique and valuable," said Rodriguez-Zuch.
Brenda Lopez-Piatiak, program manager and adviser, said LSC-CyFair's program helps to fulfill part of the college's mission of providing comprehensive educational opportunities and programs to enrich lives.
"It's a wonderful feeling to see students enrolling in the program. We sit together and talk about their schedule and how the program can work for them," said Lopez-Piatiak in the release. "Everyone's goal is a little different. What isn't different, though, is the pride in their faces and the joy they feel in their hearts about starting the path to becoming a college graduate."
Evening and weekend students choose to earn a workforce certificate or take prerequisites and earn various associate degrees at LSC-CyFair prior to transferring to a four-year university. Class offerings include accounting, C.P.A. exam prep, drafting, electronics, information technology, logistics management, machining and welding.
Registration is under way for the summer II session, which starts July 12. Fall evening classes begin Aug. 27, and fall weekend classes start Sept. 7.
