Course Types

There are now more ways to attend college.

Your safety, security and access to an excellent education is our top priority. For Summer Sessions and Fall semester, most classes will be offered virtually.

Traditional Face-to-Face learning will be prioritized for Health Professions, Biotechnology, Veterinary Technology, Culinary Arts, and other lab-based sections. All in-person courses will adhere to social distance guidelines.

 Here’s a key to understanding the types of courses you can register for.
