(DALLAS) — To better serve all students, Dallas College has announced it will offer classes in-person, online and in hybrid formats during the Summer and Fall 2021 semesters. The decision comes after carefully balancing student preferences with campus safety concerns that keep a range of teaching modalities at students’ and instructors’ fingertips.
“Some students have been incredibly successful with remote learning and the flexibility it offers them and their busy lives,” said Dr. Shawnda Floyd, provost at Dallas College. “Other students prefer in-person learning and we are pleased to be able to once again offer this option.”
Modalities offered during Summer and Fall 2021 will include:
- Traditional, in-person courses
- 100% online courses where students work at their own pace asynchronously
- Courses where classes meet together in real time online
- Hybrid courses that meet in-person for part of the course
While Dallas College returned to offering some in-person appointments in March, its full range of on-campus student services — advising, admissions, financial aid, tutoring and library services — will be available beginning with the first summer session in June. Extended hours and virtual student services appointments will also be available.
Registration for Summer and Fall classes starts later this month, regardless of whether students choose to pursue online classes, hybrid courses or attend in-person classes. Students currently enrolled in classes (even if those classes are fully online), and who are in good standing with Dallas College, are eligible to register starting April 20. Registration for all students opens April 26.
“The health and safety of our students, faculty and staff remain paramount as we reopen our campuses to students. Dallas College will continue to follow Centers for Disease Control guidelines, as well as advice from local health professionals,” said Dr. Sharon Davis, critical response officer at Dallas College.
