  • Provide an opportunity to repeat or re-enroll in courses that have high drop/fail/withdraw rates.
  • Be high-demand classes required by colleges for students in certain majors to progress.

All classes will be delivered online, with 80-100% synchronous online engagement, to give students more interaction with faculty. All instructors have completed eFaculty certification and have experience teaching online.  Individual class meeting times and days are set by the instructor.
