SAN ANTONIO - The University of the Incarnate Word (UIW) School of Extended Studies announces the expansion of the daytime blended learning program to its Northeast campus at 6909 N. Loop 1604 East, Suite 1009. This change is for its non-traditional students attending the Adult Degree Completion Program (ADCaP).

Beginning with the first 8-week Fall term, ADCaP will offer five blended courses on Tuesday mornings at the Northwest Center at 9729 Datapoint Drive.  Both undergraduate and graduate Business Administration degrees will be available at this location.  At the Northeast Center, located inside Rolling Oaks Mall, four undergraduate classes will be held on Thursday mornings.  Students will meet in class with their professor one day a week.  Additional assignments and discussions will be completed online.  This format will cut the classroom time in half, while increasing the student/professor interaction through the online tools.

The blended education model that ADCaP incorporates into its degree programs is designed to meet the growing demand from working professionals who prefer not to miss out on the traditional face-to-face classroom experience, but require the flexibility inherent with working irregular hours or shifts.

"We offer classes in the daytime to meet the needs of students who cannot attend our evening classes." said Vincent Porter, dean of the School of Extended Studies. "We chose a blended format to accommodate an adult student’s busy schedule.  Blended formats give students a flexible delivery model that combines the traditional face-to-face classroom setting with the convenience of online learning tools."
