Adult and Continuing Education understands the unique needs of busy adult students. For that reason, we offer courses in a wide range of times and formats. Please note: minimester and immersion courses require assignments done in advance of the course starting. Advance Assignments will be posted in Blackboard two to three weeks prior to the start of the semester. (If the assignment is not available, contact the course faculty member or department secretary for additional information.) Occasionally, a semester-long class will also have an advance assignment, so you'll want to explore the course's requirements in Blackboard ahead of time so that you are prepared.
