A new model for learning
Flexible and affordable, our Hybrid Learning programs offer students a new way to earn a degree from America’s Environmental College. Students can choose where and how to learn according to individual preferences and ultimate career goals.
What is Hybrid Learning?
Hybrid Learning gives students the option to complete their entire degree through a combination of online and/or on-campus courses, depending on the needs of the student at any given point during their college career. Move fluidly between online or in-person learning, either at home or on campus. Students decide the type of coursework in which they want to enroll!
What are the benefits of Hybrid Learning?
Flexible schedules with eight start dates per year.
Students can apply year-round and enter into the program at any point in the year. Also, if a student needs to take a year or two off, they can stop and return to their degree program without having to reapply. Students can take up to six credits a term.
Our five-week terms let students concentrate on just one or two classes at a time. Students who take one three-credit course per term are considered full-time and are eligible for financial aid.
Tuition is differentiated based on the modality: $550 per credit hour for face-to-face courses, and $470 per credit hour for online courses. With this flexible structure, housing and dining plan options are modular, based on the student’s needs and preferences.
All classes are taught by faculty who are experts in their respective fields and trained in pedagogical practices specific to their modality, online or face-to-face. Students can expect both a rich online experience as well as face-to-face learning that delivers immersive, hands-on experiences.
How much does it cost?
Tuition is differentiated based on the modality: $550 per credit hour for face-to-face courses, and $470 per credit hour for online courses. Most courses are three credits, and a typical student will take up to 24- 30 credits a year. The estimated annual cost for tuition for attending face-to-face full-time is $13,200 and attending online full-time is $11,280 (based on 24 credits a year).
Are students required to live on campus?
With hybrid learning, students can choose when and where to live and learn. A student may choose to learn online and live on campus. Alternatively, a different student may choose to live and learn on campus only. Flexible room and board options offer other options as well and are available to fit the intended duration of the on-campus stay.
