Weekend College

The Weekend College program offers a wide selection of courses in a variety of options.

What makes Weekend College unique?

  • Hybrid courses: You only come to campus once a week and the rest of your course is online.
  • Online synchronous courses: You will attend live instruction from the comfort of your home. Your whole class is online, but you will need to attend the real-time, live instructor sessions on Microsoft Teams. If you miss the live instruction, you will work with your instructor to watch the recording.
  • Student development: Our courses teach you important skills and help you grow as a student. Courses will have special presentations on learning styles, note taking, time management, visits from universities, and other activities to support your success.

Is Weekend College right for me?

Weekend College may be right for you if you are:

  • Self-motivated
  • Eager to complete your education faster

  • TSI exempt or complete (note some courses do not require TSI completion)

Can I maintain work-life balance with Weekend College?

Weekend College is suited for those with a busy life.

The Weekend College schedule lets you balance your schoolwork with family and work responsibilities more easily than a traditional course schedule allows.

By attending classes face-to-face once a week (Friday) or once on the weekend (Saturday) at our convenient Trinity River Campus, your week/weekends are free. Our online synchronous options also provide flexibility: you can either attend online at a specific time or watch a recording later to catch up.

Depending on your work-life balance, you will work through 2 courses at a time during each of the TCC’s 7-week terms.
