Types of eLearning Classes

Online Classes

Online courses allow you to access your course from any location, any time, using web-based technology. These courses are not self-paced, so you'll need to follow the week-by-week structure and schedule of assignment deadlines like a class on campus. These classes have an $8 per credit technology fee per course. 

Hybrid Classes

Hybrid (H) classes combine class work at the physical campus with work that's completed in the online environment. This is a great option if you like online learning, but still enjoy being on campus interacting with teachers and classmates. Check the Schedule carefully for meeting times and locations. These classes have a $4 per credit technology fee per course.

Face-to-Face Classes

Many of our face-to-face classes utilize Canvas and other web based tools to enhance learning.
