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).

  • Students entering their junior or senior year in fall 2014 at any New York State high school are eligible to participate.

  • Courses are taught by Hudson Valley Community College faculty.

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.

Spring 2015 online courses begin Tuesday, Jan. 20 and end on Friday, May 8, 2015.
