Share your experience!

You know how valuable your Hiram education is. That’s why you chose to be here. Do you know someone whose life does not allow them to attend college Monday through Friday? Share with them these three great options.

Weekend College: Since 1977 we have been serving the needs of adult students through our Weekend College - designed for students whose schedules make weekday classes impractical, but who still want the traditional classroom setting. By taking classes every other weekend, students with transfer credits can complete in as little as 18 months.

Online: We know even the Weekend College format can be difficult when balancing family and work obligations. Students can take education into their own hands with online degree programs at Hiram. Complete your degree in Accounting, Business Management, or Communication fully online.

Blended: Students can build their own schedule and take the classes they want, when and how they want them. We recognize every adult has a busy time of year where face-to-face classes may not be ideal. Round out your schedule with a mix of online and Weekend College classes that can work for any student.
