Class Formats to Fit Your Busy Schedule

Full Semester (Traditional)

Courses are 15 weeks in length and meet in-class weekly face-to-face for three hours with limited to no expectation of online activities.

Accelerated/Blended

Courses are typically seven weeks in length and are comprised of standard intervals of face-to-face in-class activities and online interactions. For instance, a blended class will meet face-to-face weekly for 3 hours a week and the equivalent amount of time will be spent participating in web-based activities such as asynchronous discussions, simulations and the review of video and web-based content.

Online

Online courses may be any length and are delivered entirely through web-based asynchronous interaction including discussion boards, videos, and live chats. There is no required face-to-face component. Students are expected to log on to the course regularly and expectations for participating and deliverables will match those of a course requiring a face-to-face component.
