Registration is underway for a new concept at UCCS, weekend-only classes.

Carley Ries, director, Campus Wide Extended Studies, said classes will begin Feb. 12 and continue through April 30. Classes will meet from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. or 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturdays with breaks on March 19 and 26.

“This is another option for students,” Ries said. “Non-traditional students who work during the week may find Saturday classes better fit their schedules or this could be a way to introduce new members of the greater Colorado Springs community to the campus.”

The classes, which range from American Sign Language to Understanding Terrorism, are part of a new-to-UCCS “Weekend University” concept. The courses will be offered in a condensed 10-week time frame and completion will count toward degree requirements and financial aid. Administered by Campus Wide Extended Studies, the courses are main campus classes.
