This spring Baton Rouge Community College is set to offer Weekend College, a program that allows for a student to work toward one of two certificate programs – Business Technology or General Studies – by attending classes offered only on Friday evening and all day Saturdays. The program is designed to meet the scheduling needs of working adults.
The Weekend College program offers the two certificates that can be completed by enrolling in and passing 15 credit hours of courses over two semesters. Classes will be held in the Cypress Building on the Mid City Campus, 201 Community College Drive, and meet on Friday evenings at 5:30 p.m., and all day Saturday, beginning at 8 a.m. There is no special registration or additional fees to pursue either of the aforementioned certificates through Weekend College. All courses offered, including many of the general education pre-requisite required courses, are open to all BRCC students.

ABOUT WEEKEND COLLEGE CERTIFICATE PROGRAMS
The Certificate in General Studies provides a strong initial grounding in liberal education. Upon completion, students are prepared to successfully meet transfer requirements at most four – year universities and have obtained the knowledge and skills frequently identified by employers as desirable qualities in an employee. The certificate program may be taken by students who wish eventually to pursue an associate/baccalaureate degree, or by students who wish to expand their personal knowledge and do not intend to obtain a more advanced degree.
The Certificate in Business Technology is designed to meet the entry-level employment needs of the Greater Baton Rouge metropolitan area business community. It provides a general education and the work skills needed for employment. This program of study is not designed for college transfer.
