PNC - Porter County, A Convenient Full-Service Location
“We are always working to meet the needs of our students and of our local communities,”
- Chancellor James B. Dworkin
WESTVILLE – Purdue University North Central – Porter County brings a Purdue degree accessible to all residents of Porter County and the neighboring counties as well.
Purdue University North Central – Porter County, formerly known as the Valparaiso Academic Center, is located at 600 Vale Park Road. The name change comes as the facility enlarges to two buildings, features both undergraduate and graduate coursework, offers admissions and financial aid offices and more credit courses.
“PNC - Porter County brings a world-class Purdue education to a convenient location that is accessible to many students,” said PNC Chancellor James B. Dworkin. “With two buildings on site, we now have a dedicated undergraduate center as well as a graduate center for classes. Students will find one-stop shopping for their enrollment and financial aid needs and we will have a broad range of coursework available to students earning their bachelor’s degrees, plus a complete MBA offered at this site as well. A cross-section of continuing education classes and degree completion will be available for those wishing to finish degrees.”
Classes will be offered days, evenings and Saturdays to enable flexible scheduling.
PNC has offered a variety of classes at this site since 2000. PNC launched its MBA program there in October.
“We are always working to meet the needs of our students and of our local communities,” said Dworkin. “With its enhanced programming and convenience, PNC – Porter County will be a definite asset to the area.”
With the addition of a second building, PNC – Porter County has more than doubled its classroom space. The state-of-the-art facilities will feature the latest in electronic and computer capabilities to students.
Students looking ahead to enrolling in the PNC summer sessions or the 2006 fall semester will be able to take classes at PNC – Porter County. A class schedule is at www.pnc.edu.
