Soaring fuel prices have prompted Brown-Mackie College in Salina to shrink the number of days students are in class from four to three.
Starting last month, most students stopped attending classes on Wednesdays. Instead, students meet for an extra hour on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays.
Meanwhile, Wednesdays have been set aside for academic and career counseling, group study, tutoring and other services.
Brown Mackie president Judy Holmes says the change allows students to make fewer trips and save on gas.
The change doesn't affect nursing students.
