Online and Hybrid Course Enrollment Procedure

Students taking online and hybrid courses must complete an Enrollment Verification Activity by the 10% date in each online and hybrid course to be fully enrolled in the course.  Students who DO NOT complete the enrollment activity by the 10% date will be marked as NEVER ATTEND and will be WITHDRAWN from the course. No Exceptions. No Refunds.

Online Courses

Online courses have an NT designation and are offered completely online through Moodle, the College’s Learning Management Systems (LMS). An online course is a college credit course in which all of the learning activities are completed online. Students must maintain academic progression through the course and must have access to a computer and the Internet to complete course assignments and activities. Online courses have the same standards, required competencies, and credit hours as traditional seated courses.

Hybrid Courses

Hybrid courses have an HY designation and are a blend of face-to-face and online learning. A hybrid course is a college credit course in which a portion of the learning activities are completed online. Contact hours, traditionally spent in the classroom or lab, are reduced. Students must attend the scheduled face-to-face meeting times and must have access to a computer and the Internet to complete the online portion. Hybrid course have the same standards, required competencies, and credit hours as traditional seated or totally online courses. The instructor for each course will set the requirement for online meetings and class meetings.
