Types of Online Classes

LACC offers online courses in different modalities to suit your particular needs. It is possible to complete numerous degrees and programs entirely online, but if you're like most students, your schedule will be a combination of online and in-person classes. Here are the four different ways courses are offered online, and these are the terms you can search for in the Schedule of Classes. See the dropdown menu under "Class Search Type."

  • Online: No real-time meetings are required. All activities are online.
  • Online Live: Real-time meetings are required as scheduled. All activities are online.
  • HyFlex: Students can choose to join each scheduled class session in person or online live.
  • Hybrid: Some in person meetings are required as scheduled. The remaining activities are online.
