YOUR ONE-STOP SITE FOR ALL WEEKEND COLLEGE NEEDS

What is CSN’s Weekend College?
Our Weekend College offers you the opportunity to enter the workforce, change careers, or pick up a specialty in your field by taking classes on weekends, and earning a skill or industry certificate in as little as one weekend, within a semester, and no longer than a calendar year.  Determined to accommodate the needs of our busy students, CSN’s weekend classes offer the same high-quality instruction and resources as classes taught during the week.

Who is a Weekend College Student?

Programs of Study
Through CSN's Weekend College, a student may complete one of three types of programs:

  1. A SKILLS CERTIFICATE for college credit program earns the individual a stackable credential towards a certificate of achievement and/or associate degree.  Both the certificate of achievement and associate degree are eligible for financial aid, unlike a skills certificate.  A student may declare the higher level-degree certificate of achievement or associate while working toward the completion of the skills certificate.
  2. A CERTIFICATE OF ACHIEVEMENT for college credit program designed for students who are looking for instruction with a high degree of specialization.  Certificate of Achievement programs vary in length, usually 30 credits, that offer courses needed to prepare students for immediate employment.
  3. A non-credit INDUSTRY CERTIFICATE that leads to industry-recognized credentials.  The student earns continuing education credentialing.
