What is a hybrid course?
Hybrid courses combine online learning with face-to-face instruction. All hybrid courses will meet on-campus on specified days (specific meeting dates will be provided by the instructor). The remaining instruction and course content will be delivered as an internet course. The start and end dates of all courses are listed at the top of the syllabus, which will be provided online (Blackboard) within the course site. You will not have access to the course until its official start date.
Steps to Taking a Hybrid Course
I. Qualify by Meeting Requirements & Prerequisites
II. Register and Pay
- For more information on applying to the college, registering for classes or paying tuition and fees, please visit the student services website.
III. Access and Attend Your Class
Hybrid courses follow a specific schedule. Please refer to WebAdvisor for course start date and meeting dates. Students are expected to access their course (via Blackboard) on the first day of class (start date) to receive instructions and begin their coursework. Courses are not self-paced.
Important: Each hybrid course contains an Enrollment Verification Assignment (EVA), located in the Start Here area of the course. The deadline to complete the EVA will be communicated by your instructor via email or Blackboard. Additional course content may not be accessed until completion of the EVA. To ensure access to course content and continued course enrollment, complete the EVA on the first day of class.
Regardless of any other work you may have completed in the course, not completing the EVA by the due date will:
- Result in your being administratively withdrawn from the course.
- Make you ineligible for a refund. If you are receiving financial aid you may be required to reimburse tuition and fees.
- Use your college email account for all email communication.
- Login to Blackboard frequently, as directed by your instructor.
- Students taking hybrid courses must attend all on-campus sessions and complete the online coursework.
- Actively participate in the online portion of the course and keep in contact with the instructor.
- Meet assignment and testing deadlines set by the instructor.
