Tompkins Cortland Community College yesterday (June 11) announced it will expand its offerings at the extension centers in Cortland and Ithaca, making all first-year requirements of select degree programs available without taking any classes on the Dryden campus.
Starting this fall, a full first year of accounting or human services can be completed at the Cortland Center.
The first year of a liberal arts and sciences-general studies degree will be available entirely at the Ithaca Extension Center.
Both centers will also offer courses fulfilling many prerequisites for other degrees like the popular nursing program.
They’re also expanding the hours each center will be open, providing more opportunities in particular for adult students who may not be able to fit a traditional school schedule into their busy lives.
From the TC3 release:
The change in how the College is utilizing the extension centers is partly in response to a recent survey of the community, which showed a need for more flexibility in education, particularly for in-demand careers like accounting and human services.
The option of completing degrees at the extension centers complements the existing opportunities available through online classes. More than half of all the degree and certificate programs available at the College offer at least half of their classes online, including nine degrees and six certificates that can be completed entirely online.
