Education That Fits Your Life
Sandhills Community College tries to accommodate students who have conventional class meeting time needs and those not so typical. We schedule classes during the day, evenings and even on weekends to help everyone achieve their educational goals. We even have classes you don’t need to come to the campus to take (Distance Learning). To help your with all your educational goals, regardless of your scheduling needs, you will be given an email address when you become a student and can use it as long as you are enrolled at Sandhills.
We classify classes as traditional if they meet in a classroom during the day. Even though they are not Internet or hybrid, they will probably require the use of an internet-connected computer in order to utilize Moodle, an online course delivery system, and email. If you do not own a computer or have Internet access, you can use those located in various areas throughout the campus.
Internet/Distance Learning Classes
Internet/Distance Learning classes are those in which the instruction and assignments are given electronically. Moodle and email are utilized. You are not required to come to campus to complete these courses.
Hybrid classes are those in which the instruction and assignments are given both in the classroom and electronically. Traditional classroom instruction is combined with Moodle and email. If you do not own a computer or have Internet access, you can use those located in various areas throughout the campus.
Saturday Classes & Programs
Saturday classes meet five Saturdays a semester – the first Saturday of the semester and the first Saturday of each month thereafter unless a holiday falls on the day. Traditional instruction is combined with Moodle and email. This works well for those who wish to earn a degree but work during the week.
Another way we help those that work during the day but still want to take college courses is by offering Evening Hybrid classes. The classroom time is scheduled during evening hours and other instruction is delivered via Moodle and email.
