Beginning each spring, Texas Woman’s University will offer a MEd in Reading at the Collin Higher Education Center. This provides a convenient option for students in the McKinney/Allen/Plano area. During the Fall and Spring semesters, most classes on at the CHEC campus are taught one night per week from 5:30-8:20 p.m. Summer courses may be offered with different day/time options. Students may also choose to enroll in a combination of CHEC, blended and Denton campus classes.
