Online Classroom Delivery Method
At Brighton College, the courses are delivered through an online classroom. Students take one course at a time. In order to complete the program in the required amount of time, we recommend students make a schedule that allows completion of the lessons for each course in no longer than 6–8 weeks per course. Depending on the student’s schedule, motivation, and credit hours of the course, some courses will take more time than others. The instructors and student services representatives will help students stay on track, but students must always keep in mind that they must complete the program in the maximum amount of time as set out in the catalog and enrollment agreement.
In each course, students participate in discussion boards allowing for a combination of interaction with faculty and fellow students. This interaction, in conjunction with prescribed course assignments, which are comprised of quizzes, writing assignments, and case studies, are designed to facilitate the student’s successful completion of each course in a manner that supports the attainment of his/her long-term academic goals.
Brighton College has open enrollment and you may enroll and begin your program at any time. Students may proceed through their program as quickly as desire, time, and ability permit.
