COVID-19 Notice – 2021-2022 Academic Year

As we prepare for the upcoming academic year, the challenges and uncertainty for delivering course content remain in this COVID-19 environment.  The college intends to provide academic courses through a variety of formats, including in-person/onsite, blended/hybrid, remote, and online.  Since unanticipated circumstances at any time could affect the ability to deliver course content in a particular manner, the college reserves the right to modify the delivery method for course content for the health and safety of students, faculty, and staff.  Irrespective of the delivery format, the college’s competitive tuition, and course fee structure shall remain the same for academic courses, consistent with published college tuition and fee schedules.  There will be no refund or reduction on tuition or course fees since the college will be providing a full semester of instruction and awarding full academic credit to those who satisfactorily fulfill course requirements.

Course Formats

Choose from four types of classes in formats designed to keep you safe and meet your needs. Formats include in-person, blended hybrid, synchronous online, and asynchronous online.  Learn more about these formats here.
