Catawba hosting open house for evening studies program

Catawba College’s School of Evening Studies will sponsor a drop-in open house 5 p.m.-7 p.m. April 8 in Room 203 of Ketner Hall on campus. Prospective students will be given an overview of program offerings and financial aid opportunities.
Courses are open to individuals with no previous college work as well as transfer students. Two bachelor’s degree programs are offered in the evening: business administration with concentrations in business management and information systems, and birth-kindergarten education for community college graduates who have completed the A.A.S. degree with the early childhood associate major.
The unique block format in the evening allows students to concentrate on one course at a time. Classes meet on Monday and Thursday evenings from 6 p.m. to 9:45 p.m. and one Saturday morning per month from 8 a.m. to 11:45 a.m. Students complete one course per month for 12 or more credit hours per semester. Tuition in the evening program is comparable to that of North Carolina public universities, and federal and state financial aid is available.
To enroll in the program, students must be at least 21 years old or hold an associate’s degree from a community college. Applications are being accepted for the summer term, which begins on May 29, and the fall semester, which begins Aug. 7.
“Our graduates report that the personal attention in our classroom-based program and our one-course-per-month format have contributed greatly to their successful degree completion,” said Dr. Edith Bolick, dean of the School of Evening and Graduate Studies.
