August 13, 2003 (Lexington, Ky.) -- What began as a few meager courses offered in the evenings and weekends in 1953 at the University of Kentucky has grown to a whopping 427 courses in 70 fields of study with a 10,000-plus enrollment in the UK Evening and Weekend College (EWC).

The spring 2003 enrollment of 10,492 students taking 30,724 credit hours equated to nearly $5 million in tuition income, said Cecile McKinney, EWC coordinator. Fall enrollment 2003 – the 50th anniversary of EWC – may set even new records, McKinney predicted. Enrollment is set for noon to 5:30 p.m. Friday, Aug. 22, and 9 a.m. to noon Saturday, Aug. 23.

The range of EWC courses is extensive, McKinney said, ranging from geography to Germanic languages and from epidemiology to educational and counseling psychology.

EWC also promotes its activities in a highly-successful back-to-school workshop aimed primarily at nontraditional-aged students and workshops for adults held twice a year and a variety of on- and off-campus presentations aimed primarily at nontraditional-aged students. The free fall 2003 Back-to-School Workshop is set for 7-9 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 23. It will be conducted in 230 Student Center Addition.

Though the EWC may be best known for its course offerings for undergraduate students, McKinney emphasized that graduate level courses are also in high demand. “We actually offer more master’s degree courses than bachelor’s degree courses, including an MBA,” McKinney added.
