COVID-19 FAQ – Credit Students
Spring 2022 Semester
Frequently Asked Questions – Credit Students
In Effect January 31 – May 30, 2022
For the Spring 2022 semester, the College will be offering most courses in a face-to-face format. We are also offering several different instructional formats strategically designed to ensure both student success and safety:
- Lecture (LECT): All classes are in-person. Students are expected to attend classes on campus.
- Remote Synchronous (RSYNC): Remote Synchronous is our newest course format. This type of course meets with a live instructor via a virtual format (generally through Microsoft Teams, similar to Zoom). You will log in at a scheduled time to participate in the class. All instruction is provided remotely, just as if you were going to class on campus.
- Online (NET): Online classes meet within our Learning Management System called Canvas. This is an asynchronous format, which means you complete weekly work when it’s best for you. You have 24-hour access to your class. This is not a self-paced course; there are weekly assignment deadlines. Tests may be required in the Testing Center by appointment.
- Hybrid (HYB): Hybrid means that there are some scheduled face-to-face activities on campus, but more than 50% of the class is conducted online (not at a scheduled time/day).
We have prepared this Q&A to address the most frequently asked questions by credit students. We will update this periodically to keep you informed.
