Learn on Demand accommodates the needs of students by offering open entry courses. This allows students to choose the start date of each class. Courses can start 365 days a year! The amount of credit that will be earned for the course or module determines the amount of time allowed for course completion.

Course or Module Credit Hour Maximum Length of Time for Course or Module Completion
.1 to .5 3 weeks
.6 to 1.0 5 weeks
1.1 to 1.5 8 weeks
1.6 to 2.0 10 weeks
2.1 to 2.5 13 weeks
2.6 and above 15 weeks

The course you choose determines your “calendar.” Since Learn on Demand operates in a distinctly different manner than traditional classroom courses, the time allowed for the courses will not be extended for holidays or institutional closings. Also, there is no fall or spring break or “snow days” for these courses. The time allowed for the course is actual calendar days with no allowance for breaks. Each class will have its own specific dates for the last day to drop without a “W,” midterm, final exam, etc.

When a course has a lab as a co-requisite (meaning they must be taken at the same time), both the lecture and the lab will have the same completion time so the course work and lab work can be aligned regardless of the amount of credit earned in each course (unless noted otherwise).

You will be able to access Student Self-Service all day, every day even when our colleges are closed. Once you register for a course you will be able to see your specific course calendar through Student Self Service by following this navigation: Student Self-Service → My Class Schedule (start and end dates) → Deadlines (drop deadline, cancel and withdrawal deadlines).

Although Learn on Demand courses and modules are offered 365 days a year, 7 days a week, 24 hours a day (except for scheduled maintenance), Learn on Demand staff and faculty will not be available on the following holidays: Labor Day, Presidential Election Day, Thanksgiving Day, Day after Thanksgiving Day, Day before Christmas Eve, Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, week between Christmas and New year’s Eve, New Year’s Day, Martin Luther King Day, President’s Day, Good Friday (1/2day), Memorial Day, and Independence Day.
