New & Continuing Student Registration Information

HGTC offers courses in different formats - formats that will work best for your personal situation. Everyone learns differently. The key is finding the right learning opportunity and format that will allow you to continue your studies to successful program completion. For the upcoming semester, options include courses that will be taught in-person/lecture, hybrid, and online. Below is more information on how to read your schedule.

  • Online - The time will be listed as TBA on your schedule as there will be no specific meeting dates or times.  The campus will be listed as INT and Section #s will begin with the letter “I”.
  • Hybrid - Part of the class will be held online, and part of the class will be on-campus.  The on-campus meeting times are provided and students should expect to be present on campus for the class/lab on the days and times listed.  The campus will be listed as HYB and Section #s will begin with the letter “H”.
  • Synchronous - The class/lab is meeting online, but the student is expected to login and participate in the online class during the times/dates listed on the schedule. Links for class sessions will be provided to students by faculty. The campus will be listed as SYN and Section #s will begin with the letter “Y”.
  • Face-to-face (F2F) - For courses being held on-campus, students should be prepared to be on campus for the times and dates listed on the schedule. To ensure proper social distancing and safety, students may be asked to attend on certain days, wear masks or other personal protective equipment (PPE). On-site class attendance requirements will be communicated by the faculty member to students through D2L on the first day of class.

NOTE: Courses with lecture and lab may be offered with mixed formats, for example the  lecture may be held online or in a synchronous online format and the labs being held on-site.
