As you and your families make difficult decisions regarding the upcoming Fall semester, we are excited to tell you about options that will provide you with flexibility while adhering to CDC guidelines to ensure your health.  All courses for the Fall 2020 semester will be offered in one of the following three formats:

Remote Instruction – Remote courses were designed to be taught in a classroom but are being offered as a form of distance education due to the emergency conditions.  Remote classes are completely online but include scheduled virtual meeting times to occur when the class is listed to meet.

Online Instruction – Online courses were designed to be taught in an online setting.  Unless otherwise noted, online courses were developed to be taught without specific meeting times.

Hybrid Instruction – Hybrid courses are a combination of the traditional face-to-face instruction and remote/online sessions.  This may include some on-campus labs with remote lecture, reduced in-classroom time, or other instructional designs that meet the needs of the course materials.

Regardless of your chosen option, you will need access to a computer and a steady internet connection.


REMEMBER, you cannot access your Distance Education class until after 8am on the the first day of your term.
