The mission of the Office of Evening and Weekend Programs (OEW) is to deliver services to evening and weekend students and faculty. We serve as a liaison for students to the administrative and academic offices. We assist students with all issues related to evening and weekend classes, including advisement and registration. OEW's charge is to review evening, weekend and accelerated offerings and recommend schedule adjustments to department chairs. Students who attend courses at night and on weekends can take advantage of various delivery methods, such as virtual courses, to attain their undergraduate degrees.
Educational Options and Flexibility
As an evening and weekend student, you are not limited; you will have the flexibility of attending college full-time or part-time. Monday thru Friday, evening classes begin as early as 4:00 p.m.; however, the largest selection of evening courses start at 6:00 p.m. or thereafter. Saturday and Sunday courses begin as early as 8:30 a.m.
Students can fast-track their undergraduate degrees by taking advantage of accelerated courses (AC). AC courses meet for seven weeks and allow students to complete two courses within the same timeslot for one complete semester Students can also fast-track their degree by taking online courses, registering for 18 credits a semester, and enrolling in summer and winter intersessions. Other options to fast track are the College Level Examination Program (CLEP), request department challenge exams, and approval of portfolio development by earning credit for prior learning/life experiences. All of the above must be relative to your degree of study.
The Immersion Program is housed in the OEW. The Medgar Evers College Immersion program consists of tuition-free intensive workshops designed to prepare students for college-level writing and math. Students with a CUNY Proficiency Index Score (CPI) below 65 in English or less than 60 in math should enroll in the Immersion Program. The program is designed to strengthen students’ academic preparation for college and increase their chances of academic success. Upon successful completion of an Immersion writing or math workshop, students are ready for the respective college-level English or math course.
