Course Times and Locations
APT College courses are tailored to meet the specific needs of our students and can be scheduled for any date and time of the year.
Asynchronous classes are delivered in a weekly format and the students collaborate with the instructor and classmates online at their convenience. Students can attend the scheduled online webcast form any location with a computer and reliable internet connection (see Minimum Requirements).
The duration of 4 credit hour courses (corresponding to 40 hours of academic engagement) vary between 10 and 14 learning sessions over a 5 to 7 week timeframe for webcast and blended modalities. Additional course sessions may be scheduled as a result of specific requests on an as-needed basis. A 4 credit hour asynchronous course has duration of 9 weeks. Students are expected to spend approximately twice the amount of time studying independently as spent with instructor-led activities (i.e, listening to video lectures). For courses that are higher credit-bearing, please contact an Academic Advisor or Education Representative.
