Distance / Online Bachelor Calendar and Schedule of Classes

*For Fall 2020 and Spring 2021, all of our distance / online division courses will be fully online to support our working adults who are likely to face uncertain work and childcare issues.

Online courses are either 8 or 16 weeks long. This means you are taking fewer courses at one time so that you can more easily focus on each course.

For fall 2021, we anticipate returning to a combination of fully online and hybrid.

Online classes are “asynchronous” which is a big word for “not at the same time.” Online classes have due dates but no specific required time for you to be online. You simply need to meet the due dates for each assignment. Online classes are great for adult students who work long hours, or travel for their job, or have inconsistent work and family schedules.

Hybrid courses combine face to face classes with online delivery.

Hybrid courses meet for four weeks, every Thursday evening, and one Monday evening at the end to wrap up the class. Classes start at 6:00PM and except for class meetings in a computer lab, you are free to eat in the classroom. There are three online sessions in between the face to face classes for additional content, feedback, and interaction with your faculty and classmates. It’s a flexible work-friendly format for the busy working adult student with a lot of faculty contact.
