Classes taught online

While all courses in the fall semester 2020 will have some distance learning component, a small number of classes will be only taught online. If you have an online course, you will see the section number on your class schedule has been changed to ONL (e.g. ART-101-ONL).  See this complete list of online-only classes. 

If you previously have notified the college that you plan to be a remote learner this fall, you do not have to change your courses to online-only classes. All faculty are prepared to teach every course to every student regardless of the student's location or method of attending class. If you have a question about the mode of your courses or how your course schedule will meet,  contact your instructor. Additional policies and procedures may be found online
