Worker Friendly

This program is offered at times and in formats that meet the needs of working adults. This includes:

  • Hybrid: Hybrid courses provide students with the scheduling flexibility of fewer campus visits while covering the same materials as an equivalent class held entirely on campus. Hybrid classes usually have at least one on-campus meeting per week combined with a "virtual classroom" with online content, lessons and activities.
  • Evening: Courses with a start time of 4:00 PM or later.
  • Daytime: Courses offered between 8:00 AM and 4:00 PM
