Advantages of College in the High School online courses:

  • Online courses do not affect students' academic schedules. Students work on their 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 2013 at any New York State high school are eligible to participate.

  • Students are enrolled in courses with their peers from other schools in the state as well as with Hudson Valley students.

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 in the Getting Started area.

Spring 2014 online courses begin Tuesday, Jan. 21 and end on Friday, May 9, 2014.
