Virtual Open House
Welcome to Unity College’s Virtual Open House!
Hello! I’m Emily Valli, lead recruiter for Hybrid Learning at Unity, and I’m excited to give you the grand tour. You may be wondering what Hybrid Learning is, how much it costs, and what it is like to study online and in-person at Unity. Follow me as I introduce you to faculty and staff that can answer all your questions.
But first off, let me introduce you to our President, Dr. Melik Peter Khoury, who can give you the big picture about why we decided to create Hybrid Learning for you:
Like the president said, Hybrid Learning is designed to be flexible and affordable.
- Affordable = pay only for the classes and services you choose
- Flexible = 8 terms a year and 5-week courses let you study where and when you want, online or in-person (or a combination of the two)
Vice President of Hybrid Learning, Zach Falcon, has more to say about why he thinks it is the best option for students in these uncertain times:
So by now, you’ve got a pretty good idea of what Hybrid Learning is all about, right? (Don’t worry, we won’t quiz you on any of this!) So what about applying? In the next two videos, I talk about how easy it is to apply, and my colleague, Heather McAnirlin, explains how military benefits work:
I know what you are thinking…how much does all this cost? The Hybrid model is very affordable, and you only pay for what you use. And since every student’s financial situation is unique, we’d love to talk to you. We’ll provide a personalized financial plan that includes solutions for paying for college, including financial aid.
