Triton College provides a variety of class times, course lengths and locations to accommodate students’ needs. Scheduling options include:
Fast Track Classes
The Triton College Fast Track Program is an accelerated program which gives students the opportunity to complete their associate’s degree by attending classes throughout the week or on the weekend. Students meet for longer class sessions than they would for semester-length classes, but they cover the same course content. Seven-week courses are offered at the beginning of each semester, as well as at midterm. Eight-week and five-week courses are offered during the summer session.
A limited selection of daytime and evening classes are offered at Triton extension centers, including area high schools. This arrangement eliminates the time and cost of traveling to campus and allows students to attend classes close to home. (See community map in the back of this catalog for locations.)
Weekend College is primarily designed for those individuals who prefer intensive weekends of study. There are different scheduling options. Some courses meet the full semester while others are Fast Track classes. By choosing from these many scheduling options, students can organize their classes around their jobs, family obligations and transportation needs.
