Online classes follow the same basic processes for online classes, but instead of attending the first class meeting to request an add code, students should follow the process as described on the Distance Education Waitlist or Adding web page.

Online - Online classes meet entirely online. Students will be able to access their online courses after noon on the first scheduled day of the class. Most instructors have some kind of first day activity for students to complete to ensure that they are active in the class. Students who fail to log on the first day and complete the assigned activity may be dropped from the course. After the first day, course access requirements vary depending on the course curriculum and activities. Most instructors do not have specific dates and times that students must log on to the class. However, there are due dates and times for assignments and activities. It is the student's responsibility to ensure that they have completed and submitted their work by the due date and time.
more information about what should be done the first day of an online class, visit the Getting Started (What to do on the First Day) page.

Hybrid - Hybrid courses meet online and face-to-face at a Chaffey College location. Students must attend the first class meeting on campus to avoid being dropped from the course. Instructors will explain online requirements at the first class meeting.
The majority of online course content is in some sort of text format/documents. This could be PowerPoints, Word, or PDF documents. Just as in the face-to-face learning environment, instructors have individual teaching styles. Students should explore all areas of a course and familiarize themselves with each course.
