Here's how it works
As a Columbia College Global student, you can choose at the start of the session whether to attend in person or virtually. Through the CCG Virtual Education Initiative, you receive the same excellent education either way.
We believe in empowering you to choose what will help you successfully continue your education—especially if you’re facing challenging circumstances during these uncertain times.
If you choose to attend online, you can sign up for a Virtual Education course offered at any Columbia College location, giving you additional flexibility to find courses that fit your schedule.
If the in-person option works best for you, please check with your advisor about course availability and other details, because some sites may be closed due to local, state, or military health regulations.
Here are three key terms that will help you consider the options in our CCG Virtual Education Initiative:
- Virtual classrooms are synchronous, which means they're happening in real time with the instructor and students using a meeting technology like Zoom.
- Online classes cover the same materials, but are asynchronous and you can attend at any time that fits your schedule.
- On-site virtual courses connect multiple classrooms where students are physically present at Columbia College locations.
Because we want you and all our students to be successful in this innovative educational model, Columbia College is starting a virtual coaching initiative. Your advisor can give you more details.Read our COVID-19 updates
