These classes require face-to-face interaction. CDC recommendations and precautions for a safe environment will be stringently followed. The number of students in a classroom has been reduced to allow for distancing and students are required to wear a face/mouth covering when on campus.

Both classes are GEER Scholarship qualified. The scholarship is based on need and will award up to $750 per student and can be used for tuition, fees, book, supplies, credentialing tests, transportation, childcare, and other components as deemed necessary.
