change in protocols. Several of our programs are returning with a hybrid model
that will still provide some online opportunities for the continuation of learning.
Whether instruction is fully
in-person, hybrid, or online you must be sure to participate in all hours
offered each week. Satisfactory attendance and grades are still required to
remain in the program and/or successfully complete the course. If you cannot
return to in-person instruction at this time, please work with your instructor
to consider appropriate next steps. Also know that our Student Services
Coordinator and Counselor are available to help answer your questions.
