Columbia Basin College will be closing its offices at noon on Fridays year-round, school officials said.
The shorter hours for the 2012-13 school year will be a continuation of the Pasco community college's summer schedule.
Most CBC classes run on a Monday through Thursday schedule, prompting the Pasco community college to maintain shorter hours on Fridays, officials said.
Office hours are 7 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Thursday. They have been open only from 7 a.m. to noon Fridays during the summer.
Some offices and services will be offered later in the day on Fridays as a courtesy to students and community members, the school said.
