Premiere Experience Features
- Unlike strictly online classes, HyFlex classes will allow students to participate in a traditional classroom and receive in-person support from instructors and other students.
- There will be certain classes, most notably those in career and technical areas, that may mandate face-to-face attendance on a more regular schedule.
- For students who prefer virtual engagement, they may be able to meet with instructors and other students through video conferences and chats, watch video lectures and attend class virtually.
- The Premiere Experience will offer Gulf Coast students the best educational opportunities for their needs.
HyFlex or hybrid flexible classes combine face-to-face and online learning in a flexible format that permits students to attend individual class sessions in person or online, depending on their preference. On occasion, there are a few programs/courses may require attendance in face-to-face classes.
HyFlex classes are like hybrid classes, which allow for a portion of a class to be completed online. However, with HyFlex classes, students can complete any portion of the class online or in class. The ability to change back and forth between the online and in-class environment is completely customizable for the student.
When you register for a class, it will either be an online class or HyFlex. HyFlex allows you to make your week-to-week or day-to-day decisions on whether you will complete the class online or on campus. Online classes are offered online only.
If you choose to take an online class and change your mind, you would have to drop the online class and find a HyFlex version of the class that has not yet started. There are usually classes offered on weekends or second term that can be added. If you choose HyFlex and want to take the class completely online, that is an option within the HyFlex model. You can take any portion of a HyFlex class online or on campus.
You do need to have internet accessibility of some kind to participate in online or HyFlex courses that you choose to complete online. If internet accessibility is a problem at home, there are locations and computers available at each campus that are open to students. In addition, it is highly recommended that students have a laptop or sufficient tablet to complete work online and away from campus.
