There are three different kinds of modes of instructions that incorporate online instruction at Westchester Community College, Online, Hybrid, and Online w/In-person requirement. Please read the descriptions below to select the mode of instruction that best suits your learning preferences:
|Mode of Instruction||Description|
|Online||Offered in a format that is delivered entirely (100%) online through the internet.|
|Online w/ In-Person Requirement||Offered in a format where the majority (80% – 90%) of the course will take place online, but these sections require proctored exam requirements either on campus or at a location determined by the instructor.|
|Hybrid||Offered in a format that combines online mode of instruction with face-to-face classroom instruction. These courses have some scheduled class meetings (between 35% to 70%) that take place on campus and the remainder of the instructional time is replaced with online meetings, assignments, and/or activities.|
