Majority of OC classes will be online in the summer and fall quarters

BREMERTON — With registration for summer and fall quarters coming in the near future, Olympic College has announced that its courses will be predominantly online.

Students can sign up for classes June 1, and while some will be available in a hybrid model combining in-person and online instruction, most classes will be taken virtually, the school announced in a statement.

“We’re making this announcement now, so that students can start to plan before summer and fall courses begin,” said Olympic College President Marty Cavalluzzi. “In preparation for spring quarter, the college converted more than 1,000 courses for online delivery, and all departments established virtual offices to ensure we are able to continue to provide the high-quality instruction and services our students expect.”

Summer quarter classes begin July 1, and fall quarter classes start Sept. 21.

Some programs deemed essential may offer in-person instruction, such as health care related classes.

“We recognize this is a time of great change and uncertainty for everyone. One thing that remains unchanged in our commitment to ensuring residents of Kitsap and Mason counties have access to high-quality instruction so that they may achieve their educational and career goals,” Cavalluzzi said.
