Class Offerings & Options to Fit Your Learning Style
During these uncertain times, one thing is certain - SCC is here to help you meet
and succeed in all of your educational and career goals. SCC is now offering more
class types than ever before, so starting or continuing your education can be as simple
as a click away! Pick what’s best for your learning style – all classes are affordable,
accessible and convenient.
Our class offerings are available in several different formats. If you prefer a structured
schedule with real-time lecture and an interactive setting, classroom or synchronous
online option is for you. If working at your own pace without lecture is your preference,
choose online option. Class type is indicated when you select your courses:
Traditional Classroom/Face-to-Face – Classes are held on campus, you select location when registering.
F = Flex–This fluid format was created as a COVID-19 response. Classes meet at designated times,
but students can choose to attend some class meetings face to face, or attend the
class remotely. Students experience both face to face and synchronous online instructional
delivery and weave between these formats throughout the semester, either by choice
or as extenuating circumstances warrant.
M= Mixture – Classes meet on campus with required use of online components for assignments.
N = Online – Classes are delivered online so you can check in any time. Students are expected
to meet assigned milestones during the course, studying at their own pace and preferred
S = Synchronous - These classes are online, too, but operate more like a traditional classroom. Students
must meet at a designated time online to attend class. Synchronous classes are real-time,
and adhere to a schedule like a traditional classroom where attendance is required.
