Part-time Studies


1. What is the Part-Time Studies program?


a. Overview:

    i. The Part-Time Studies program is part of the larger Continuing Education Program at Corpus Christi and St. Mark’s College. It is aimed toward students who plan to transition into the full-time studies program at our Colleges, and toward students who are looking into upgrading or supplementing their courses before transferring into another institution.

b. Details:

    i. Students can take up to five courses before applying to transfer into the full-time Associate of Arts, Bachelor of Arts, or University Transfer program at Corpus Christi or St. Marks College.
