College is an exciting time and a significant experience for many students. But for first-generation college students and others who are unfamiliar with the world of academia, it can also be confusing, stressful, and difficult to navigate. At Dillard University, we seek to help students of all backgrounds successfully enter and exit our school with a bachelor’s degree. 

Dillard’s Evening and Weekend Studies Program caters to the non-traditional student and offers courses either online or via hybrid instruction. We work collaboratively with other departments to assist students with everything from choosing Dillard to completing the application process, registering for classes, securing scholarships and other financial aid, gaining financial literacy, requesting a transcript, and more.
