FALL COURSE SCHEDULE & IMPORTANT INFORMATION

View web advisor for a list of current offerings for the Fall terms.  (Please note if only interested in online or hybrid, choose that in the location pull down).  Please be sure to note any on campus requirements (IE:  on campus testing).   In addition, you may check the course listing for campus commitments and additional information.  (RTF file version)

IMPORTANT INFORMATION REGARDING TERM STARTING TIMES: 

Due to mini term semesters, students will not be able to register/add an online course once the term begins (for example, for the fall 16 week term the early 8 week term, the last day to add an online class is Aug. 30th).

REMINDER-   Students in hybrid courses should log into Blackboard on the first day of the term and not wait until the first on campus meeting.  You cannot access your online or hybrid class until after 8am on the the first day of your term.

To get a good idea of your “chances for success” as an online student take the TEST OF ONLINE LEARNING SUCCESS (ToOLS)   You can be successful in online courses if you have basic technical and academic skills, are able to study independently, and are willing to devote the same amount of time and effort that you would to any college credit course.
