Classes & Materials

You are automatically registered for classes. Contact Jessica Carrillo regarding questions or conflicts with your schedule.

Textbooks, iPad mini, eBooks and materials are distributed the first day of each class, or earlier if work is required prior to the first class meeting. Your advance program fee must be paid, to access eBooks.

Please bring a laptop, paper and pencil to class with you.

Grades are in Raiderlink. Go to "MyTech tab" then "Manage My Enrollment", then "Grades".

Grades are posted at the end of a traditional semester (fall, spring, summer). Occasionally Working Professional course completion does not coincide with traditional semesters; in this case a grade of "CR" will be posted to the student's transcript on Raiderlink.

Upon course completion and assignment of a final grade, the professor will submit a change of grade form and the final grade will be posted to the student's academic transcript on Raiderlink.
