Q. What is Weekend College? top
A. Weekend College is an alternative way to pursue educational objectives at NWTC. Classes are offered on the weekend, (Friday night and/or Saturday) and meet one to four Saturdays per month. We offer credit and non-credit classes. Most of the credit classes "ladder" into a specific certificate, diploma, or associate degree. The weekend classes include a variety of traditional delivery systems.
