Class Formats and Course/Section Codes
Adult and Continuing Education understands the unique needs of busy adult students. For that reason, many courses are offered in minimester, immersion, online or hybrid formats; these course formats generally require advance assignments. (Advance assignments are posted to Blackboard two to three weeks prior to the start of the semester and must be completed by the first day of class. If the assignment is not available, contact the course faculty member or department for additional information.) Occasionally, a semester-long class will also have an advance assignment.
Formats and Course/Section Codes
During fall and spring semester, select early morning classes are available to Adult and Continuing Education students at the evening tuition rate. These courses meet 2 or more times per week and are full semester courses. Contact your advisor or call 440-826-2121 for a list of courses or to register.
Many evening courses have corresponding Day sections numbered with -16 or -17 that are not for Evening/Weekend registration. Higher day student tuition rates apply.
Check the start date for weekend courses. They often begin before the start date of day & evening classes.
XM1/XMQ as the section number indicates an Immersion course. Typically completed in just one week, most immersion courses follow a Saturday - Sunday - one weekday or two evenings - Saturday - Sunday format. Be sure to check the course schedule for exact days, dates and times for class meetings. In addition, an advance or pre-assignment is required and possibly a post-completion assignment.
HYBRID and ONLINE COURSES
Hybrid courses typically meet in the classroom 2-3 times during the term. All other course assignments, group projects, and learning activities are done online or independently by the students, providing a flexible time format for busy individuals. Online courses are completed totally online. In order to participate, each student must have a computer and a reliable, high-speed Internet connection. Blackboard, the College's online course management system, will be utilized. Organized and self-disciplined students are encouraged to try the hybrid course format. Enrollment is strictly limited.
Reduced contact courses* will require students to register for the class a minimum of 2 business days prior to the first class meeting.
