Class Formats 

In-Person Format 
In-person classes are the traditional type of class and are held at a physical location in one of the campus buildings. Note class location (Mooresville or Statesville) and room number provided at time of registration. Class hours are firm and specific.  
                                                                               Register for a class. 

Live Synchronous Classes 
These classes are held at specific dates and times, but you attend the class by logging in using your computer. You must have a stationary computer or laptop (not phone) that has a camera and microphone. Although you are not in a campus-based classroom, your home or office becomes your classroom so having a dedicated place for learning is essential for success.
