Types of Classes and Formats


Sequenced Linked classes provide student with an opportunity to enroll in multiple classes in a sequence within one semester. Sequence linked classes are classes that are part of a class sequence (i.e. ENG091, ENG101, and ENG102). Students who register for these classes are required to register for all classes in the designated sequence.

Winter Intersession classes are four-week online classes that are offered in between the end of the fall semester and the beginning of the spring semester. Winter Intersession allows students to complete courses in a shorter period of time. These fast-paced, short-term classes do not reduce the amount of student work or effort required to succeed in the course.
