Flexible Learning

Triton is a community-based college that offers a range of programs for busy professionals. Attend classes where you want, when you want -- including flexible start dates. Achieve specialty certification or an associate's degree with credit transferable to a four-year institution. At Triton, we give you choices.

Weekend Courses

Credit and noncredit classes on Friday evenings, Saturdays and Sundays. 

If you're employed or busy during week days, Triton Weekend classes provide an excellent way to get an education without disrupting your busy schedule.

Weekend classes are offered on Friday evening, Saturday and Sunday. These courses may be Fast Trackor full-semester length classes and can be either on or off campus. Weekend classes are ideal for mature students who work during the week or have family obligations which make week day classes difficult.

Internet Courses

Credit and noncredit online classes offered through the Web, e-mail, discussion groups and chat rooms. 

If getting to an on- or off-campus location is difficult for you, Internet courses may offer the perfect alternative. If you have a computer at home and access to the Internet, you can learn online in the comfort of your own home. Or use your notebook computer to continue your education on the road!

Students participate in Internet courses by logging on to the course Web site and interacting with their instructor and classmates through email, discussion groups and chat rooms. Internet courses provide the same course content as the equivalent classroom courses, but require you to be more self-disciplined. They offer more flexibility in choosing when and where course work is completed.

Accelerated Workforce Programs

Customized credit and noncredit programs directed toward achieving professional certification or licensure. 

Many of today's hottest careers are focused on industry certifications rather than traditional college degrees. Certification offers proof of job-related study designed to achieve expertise in an industry-specific subject area. Accelerated Workforce Development Programs get you up to speed "as soon as possible" in some of today's fastest growing professions. Courses focus on industry certification for Home Inspection, Computer Repair, Real Estate Licensing and other job-specific specializations. Classes are offered with frequent flexible start dates and include day, evening and weekend classes.

Fast Track

Credit classes that meet for seven weeks or less but earn the same credit as a full semester class. 

If you're looking to accelerate time spent working towards a degree, Fast Track courses enable you to gain course credit in a shorter space of time. Fast Track courses run for seven weeks or less but earn the same credits as their full-semester counterparts. Fast Track classes are offered at the beginning of the semester, with another series of classes beginning at midterm. This enables a student to take two courses within the same time frame as one semester-length course. Traditional degree programs at Triton can take two or more years. If that sounds like a long time to you, Fast Track might be just the thing.

Minicourses

Credit classes offered in two or three weeks usually during semester breaks and for the same credit as full semester classes.

If you're looking to accelerate time spent working towards a degree, Mini Courses enable you to gain course credit in a shorter space of time. Mini Courses usually meet for up to five days a week for two to three weeks, but have the same course content, and receive the same credit, as their semester-length counterparts. They are usually offered at semester break times, such as during winter holiday break, enabling students to continue their studies throughout the year. Traditional degree programs at Triton can take two or more years. If that sounds like a long time to you, Mini Courses might be just the thing.
