Good afternoon! Please review today’s updates on online course fees and technology available to students. If you still have unanswered questions, please check out our COVID-19 FAQ page.

ONLINE COURSE FEES

Since courses will be moved to an online and remote format, students enrolling in distance courses (internet/online courses) during the May Minimester and Summer Semesters will NOT be charged the $40 per course Distance Learning Fee normally included in addition to tuition and fees. The College wants to ease the burden of cost and make all courses as accessible as possible during this time.

All May Minimester, Summer and Fall 2020 priority registration dates are as follows:
