Featured Spring Courses
Spring Quarter Starts April 10
Join Us for On-Campus Classes!
See what's offered and when. Seats still available.
In-person, hybrid or fully online—we have a robust schedule of courses this winter.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Your spring classes in Canvas will NOT display on your Canvas Dashboard until the first day of the quarter.
Some classes will be taught at the regular times listed in the schedule (synchronously). Classes designated as 'Online' will typically allow for much more flexibility, and some classes will combine both approaches.
Contact your instructor if you have any questions about the method of delivery for your classes. You can find faculty contact information through our searchable online directory.
