Our Hybrid Learning Model
Offers Unprecedented Flexibility
What is Hybrid Learning?
Our Hybrid Learning definition is simple: a degree program that features a combination of online and on-campus courses. Hybrid Learning gives students the option to tailor the way they earn their degree, depending on their needs, and schedule their studies at any given point during college. Students move fluidly between online and in-person learning, choosing which courses to take at home and which to take in-person at school. With hybrid, blended learning, you decide the type of course that fits your life. It’s the most flexible way to earn a college degree!
What is the Hybrid Learning model?
The Hybrid Learning model brings together traditional and remote learning to offer students the best of both worlds. Instructors use technology like video conferencing tools and learning management systems to deliver curriculum online. Students also get to attend in-person courses, participate in the campus community, and live at school, if they wish.
What is a hybrid student?
A hybrid student takes both online and on-campus courses. Students who choose our Hybrid Learning programs at Unity College may seek extra flexibility to juggle work and family responsibilities. At the same time, they want to enjoy the traditional college experience. With Hybrid Learning, it’s possible to do it all!
What are the benefits of Hybrid Learning?
1. 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 term 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.
2. Five-Week Terms
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 method of instructional delivery: $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.
4. Quality Instruction
All classes are taught by faculty who are experts in their respective fields and trained in pedagogical practices specific to online or face-to-face learning. Students can expect a rich online experience as well as face-to-face courses that deliver immersive, hands-on learning opportunities.
How does it work?
Students choose their major and what terms they want to attend. Then, every term, they decided how many classes they want to take and how they want to attend (Online, In-Person, or a mix of the two).
How much does it cost?
Tuition is differentiated: $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 per 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 are available to fit the intended duration of the on-campus stay.
What are the student activities?
Students in Hybrid Learning can participate in intramural sports, student clubs, campus events, and more. Whether a student takes classes online or in-person, we encourage them to be a part of our campus life.
