Fall College Class Schedule (August 31-December 18, 2020)
Please note this schedule is subject to change.
NEW this fall, all college courses are being offered through our HyFlex educational model which is designed with flexibility and student choice in mind. These courses will be taught both face-to-face and online (via Zoom) by the same instructor at the same time. With the instructor’s permission, students can move between these two “sections” as necessary without any additional cost. So for those longing to be back in community with their classmates in person, the doors are open. Others who prefer to stay at home for now, or who become symptomatic during the semester and need to quarantine, can join their classes from the privacy of their homes.
