LANCASTER – Career-minded folks who find it difficult to fit college classes around family and work will find the solution with the fast-track Business Studies associate degree at the Lancaster Campus of HACC, Central Pennsylvania’s Community College.
Classes meet two nights a week, and students have the option to choose the number of sections to take during each eight-week session. Courses are offered at affordable community college prices, and financial aid options are available.
To find out more, plan to attend an information session at 6 p.m. Tuesday, April 28, in Room 227 of the Main Building on the campus.
“We know it’s tough to juggle career advancement with the everyday realities of family and work, so we have developed a program that compresses class time for the student who is focused and motivated to get an associate degree,” said Stuart Savin, Ed.D., vice president and campus dean.
“This is an intensive program that fits full semester-long classes into just eight weeks,” said Mike C. Corradino, assistant dean of academic affairs. Rather than the five- to six-years often required to complete a degree program by attending college on a part-time basis, the fast-track option can reduce that time to 24 months to 36 months, he said.
“We have designed special ‘stop-out’ options to accommodate particularly busy times. You can skip an eight-week term if things get busy at work or home and then jump right back in where you left off,” Corradino said.
“This program will be hard work and will take a real commitment from the student, it offers an alternative for those who don’t have the time to attend a semester-long class,” he added.
