adults, St. John's University offers a wide selection of degree
programs during evening and weekend hours.
Classes are arranged for working students' convenience. An evening
student at Queens, for example, can schedule classes that meet
twice a week at 6:00 p.m. or 7:35 p.m. – even 9:10 p.m. – for a
total of three credit hours weekly for each class. Another
possibility might be to schedule a three-hour class that meets once
a week. Weekend classes at Queens meet on Fridays at 6:15 p.m. or
on Saturdays at 8:30 a.m. or 12:45 p.m. It is possible to earn nine
