Blended Courses - Winter Session

Not sure if you’re ready to take a class entirely online? A blended class might be the perfect solution for you. This format offers the best of both worlds. You’ll still interact with classmates in person while you enjoy the freedom of studying where and when you want with online learning.

Blended classes at Alvernia University mix classroom meetings with online work. Classes will start on December 16, 2013 and end on January 10, 2014. The online instruction and assignments will begin on December 16; however, students will meet in class during specified dates during the Winter Session.

Students are responsible for communications software and internet service. There are both minimum and suggested requirements for computer setup. For more information, please visit our technology requirements. All courses are accredited and the credits are readily transferable.

Enjoy the best of both worlds and take a blended class this winter!
