Orientation for Online Courses

Students in online classes are responsible for balancing their time around the assignments and requirements of the class, for meeting deadlines announced by the instructor and possibly attending an on-campus final examination. To see if an online course is right for you and the way you study, please review Is an Online Course Right For You?

Hybrid courses will require attendance on campus for about 50% of the time and about 50% online. Be aware that an Online or a Hybrid course may require more work rather than less than a traditional course.

Starting with the 2017-2018 Winterim Term, all Online and Hybrid courses will use Canvas.
