Hybrid Classes

Hybrid classes include two (2) hours of classroom time at a campus. For hybrid courses with discussion requirements, the discussion and review of difficult concepts should occur in the physical classroom environment or synchronous method in addition to other learning activities the faculty member has planned. Students should complete all other coursework online (e.g. lectures, readings, content viewing, etc.).

For hybrid courses that do not have discussion questions, in-class time should be spent covering difficult concepts, generating in class discussions around the topics, spending time in the lab environment (if applicable), and participating in group activities (if applicable). Students are not required to complete online discussions for hybrid classes.

Attendance is based on in-person attendance. Students should refer to the attendance policy for more information.

Additionally, for F-1 students, hybrid classes do not count toward the distance learning limit on credits that are counted toward the full course of study requirement. So, for purposes of the full course of student requirement, hybrid classes will be treated similarly to on-ground classes.

However, for VA students, hybrid classes do not meet the requirements to be classified as in-residence training for purposes of meeting the requirements for the full monthly housing allowance.
