GC Flex

What’s GC Flex?

GC Flex gives students choice and flexibility. Using technology-enabled, purpose-designed learning spaces, professors deliver lectures and labs in the classroom and simultaneously online. You can attend class:

  • in person (physically on campus)
  • online during the same class time (synchronously)
  • or online at your convenience (asynchronously) through online modules

You can also change the way you attend class any time! With GC Flex, never miss a lesson, activity or course material, and learn in a way that suits your lifestyle.

Note: Although all course deliverables can be completed online, there will be due dates for assignments/tests. Some classes may have synchronous evaluation components required by a program’s accrediting body. Consult your course syllabus for details.


Current GC Flex programs:

Hybrid

What’s hybrid delivery?

Some parts of the program or course are online and other parts are delivered in person.

You will need to come to campus for part of your program or course.

In person

What’s in-person delivery?

Programs are fully in person and require you to attend campus.

In-person and hybrid option

What’s in-person and hybrid delivery?

These programs will have some courses that provide an option for you to choose fully in person or fully online.

This is different than GC Flex, as you may not alternate between delivery methods during the semester, but will choose one delivery method, that fits your circumstances, for the duration of the semester.

Online

What’s online delivery?

These programs are delivered remotely and you aren’t required to come to campus.

Online learning can be synchronous – you’ll meet with your professor for online classes at scheduled times – or asynchronous – you’ll complete online learning modules on your own.
