Online Courses

Spring 2018

The College in the High School program at Hudson Valley Community College now offers online courses for students in their junior or senior year and attending any New York State high school. Enrollment in these courses is limited to high school students.

Online courses begin Tuesday, Jan. 16 and end on Friday, May 10, 2018
This semester we are offering ENGL 115 Library Skills for Research and ENGL 117 Mastering Essentials of Grammar & Punctuation on separate dates from the other online courses. These courses are only one credit and run for eight weeks instead of fifteen (Sprint: March 12 - May 10, 2018).

Registration: Nov. 15, 2017 - Jan. 22, 2018

  • Tuition is $55 per credit hour and scholarships are available to students who qualify for the Federal Free and Reduced Price Lunch Program.

  • For more information about our online courses, please contact Hudson Valley's Office of School Programs at (518) 629-8164.

All students must present proof of county residency.

  • Certificates for Spring must be dated no earlier than Nov. 17, 2017. Certificates of Residence are valid only if issued within 60 days prior to the start of classes.

  • Students outside of Rensselaer County must fill out an application form, have it notarized, and submit it to their county clerk who will issue the official residency certificate.

Requirements for College in the High School online courses:

  • These courses are taught entirely online. Students must have access to a computer with an internet connection that meets the minimum system and browser requirements. Courses are managed in MyHudsonValley Portal/Blackboard. To test your system for compatibility, go to and click on Check System & Browser Requirements.
  • You must be able to utilize the Hudson Valley Community College WebMail system. (Your username and password will be sent to you at your home address after you are scheduled into the course. Read more in Accessing Student Computer Systems).
  • You must be able to budget your time and priorities. Online learning courses are NOT self-paced. They follow the semester calendar for registration, mid-terms, finals, etc. Homework and other assignments, tests and quizzes are due on a regular basis. Attendance and participation are measured by how often you log into the course and by completion of required learning activities, assignments, quizzes and tests. You can access the course at your convenience to complete your coursework each week following your class syllabus.
  • Instructional methods will depend on the course, but for most courses, all tests and finals as well as all assignments will be done online. Students will be expected to log on frequently and interact with their fellow students and the instructor.

Advantages of College in the High School online courses:

  • Online courses do not affect students' academic schedules. Students work on computers on their own schedule, logging in for the required number of sessions per week (varies by course).
  • Courses are taught by Hudson Valley Community College faculty.
