Historically Black South Carolina State University Targets Nontraditional College Students

South Carolina State University, the historically black educational institution in Orangeburg, has introduced its new Weekend College for Adult Learners Program. The new initiative is targeting nontraditional college students who hold full-time jobs during the workweek. Students in the program will attend classes on campus for four hours on Saturdays. In addition, students will participate in online assignments throughout the week when they have the time to fit academic work into their schedules.

Initially, bachelor’s degree programs in accounting, criminal justice, and social work will be offered by the Weekend College. Master’s degree programs in business administration and rehabilitation counseling are also planned.
