Weekend Colleges at EOU

Weekend College (WEC) courses are regularly offered at EOU. The credit value of the courses may vary, but most are 2 or 3 credits. WEC’s usually meet for one weekend on Friday evening and all day Saturday (Sunday, too, if it’s a 3 credit course), with additional pre- or post-coursework delivered through Canvas. Many disciplines offer these courses, and most courses may be used for major requirements and/or General Education graduation requirements.
