Classes that are listed in the schedule as "Flexible" are still ONLINE classes. They simply do not have a single set meeting time (asynchronous). All "Flexible" classes have varying meeting times that will be specified by your instructor.
Classes listed as "Scheduled" are also ONLINE courses. These classes will have specific meeting times (i.e. Tuesdays at 4:00 pm).
When you take an online class from Porterville College you receive the same quality of education that you get in our on-campus classes. Our online classes offer plenty of opportunity to interact with the instructor and classmates, while giving you the flexibility to fit your study time into your busy schedule.
