Coursework FAQs

Q: For classes offered online or with hybrid instruction, will the classes be offered only at normal class time (as in person) or will the classes be available for the students anytime during the day?
A: The nature of each course and its faculty member will determine how course content is delivered online or through a hybrid approach that blends in-person and online instruction. If the delivery involves all students meeting virtually at the same time (synchronously), the course will meet on its regularly scheduled days and times. Coursework might also be delivered asynchronously, in which case students would work on course segments at times that work best for them.
