Weekend Colleges at EOU

Weekend College (WEC) courses are regularly delivered remotely or in-person at the EOU La Grande campus or at EOU Centers around the state. WEC’s most often meet for a single weekend on Friday evening and all day Saturday (Sunday, too, if it’s 3 credits), with additional pre- or post-coursework delivered through Canvas; credits earned typically range from 2-4 in most classes. Many disciplines offer these courses, and most courses may be used for major requirements and/or General Education graduation requirements. Contact your academic advisor with any questions about how these WEC’s might work best for you. Go to your College Scheduler or Mountie Hub for individual WEC course details and to register!
