Fall Quarter 2022 FAQs

North Seattle College will offer in-person and online classes this fall. Check the Fall Quarter schedule to see if a course is online, and contact the instructor or your academic advisor with questions.

Fall quarter starts on Monday, Sept. 26.

Check the class schedule online to see if a course is in-person, online, hybrid, or "optional F2F or online." Check the "notes" section of the class listing online to learn more information and expectations for the course.

In-person Classes
If you prefer to take classes on campus, search for in-person classes. You'll see the class days and times on the schedule. 

Online Classes
For online classes, your instructor will provide materials though Canvas, our online learning management system. These materials may include readings, video lectures, and activities. 

Though you can work independently much of the time, online classes have due dates for assignments, activities, and discussions. There may also be interaction between you and other students through discussions, team projects, and other activities, depending on the course and instructor.

Your instructor will be able to answer questions through email and may offer virtual office hours. If you like a lot of independence and a flexible schedule, this is a good option for you.

Hybrid Classes
A hybrid class combines in-person instruction with online instruction. Be sure to log into Canvas before the first day of the quarter. You might not meet in person until Wednesday for example, but you may have work to do online before the first class meeting. Check the class schedule to see the days and times you'd need to be on campus.

Optional F2F or Online
Some classes are listed as "Optional F2F or Online." This means the class meets at a specific day and time, and there are no on-campus meetings. On the class schedule, the room number will appear as "virtual." 

Fall quarter starts Monday, Sept. 26, and ends on Thursday, Dec. 15. See the Seattle Colleges Academic Calendar for details.
