Work and family obligations often compete with dreams of going to college. Naugatuck Valley Community College has created an affordable solution. Through the College’s new part-time accelerated weekend Business Management Certificate and/or degree program, students who work full-time can get an associate degree or certificate in Business Management. The new program offers the opportunity to complete a fully transferrable associate degree in two or three years, by attending part-time classes that meet on weekends. At both the Waterbury and Danbury campuses, classes will be held on Friday evenings, Saturdays (Sundays-Waterbury campus only.) Financial aid is available for qualified students.
“I am delighted to announce that NVCC continues to create opportunities for our students and the communities we serve. We believe we are about access. I am grateful to the faculty and administrators for their initiative and good work,” says NVCC President Daisy Cocco De Filippis, Ph.D.
This flexible pathway is designed for students to balance work and family while pursuing an education. They can follow this guided sequence of courses for a two-year (4 semester) completion of the certificate and a three-year (6 semester) completion of the associate degree, exclusively on weekends. Students may also take online courses during the winter/summer to lighten the load during the semester.
Students may register for three weekend courses per semester. Many will study in a cohort, and work toward the same certificate or degree. Laboratory classes are held in both Waterbury and Danbury on Friday, 5:30 pm–9:45 pm; and
Saturday, 8:00 am–10:55 am, 11:00 am–2:05 pm, 2:20 pm–5:15 pm; and on Sunday, 11:10 am–2:05 pm in Waterbury.
