    Understanding your Summer 2021 schedule—
    How, when and where your classes will be held

    • MANY Summer courses that DO NOT have a hands-on learning component will be conducted fully via DISTANCE-LEARNING or ONLINE with the exception of courses at our regional locations (Eaton, Greenville and Troy) which will be conducted as HYBRID-LEARNING sections, with both in-person, on-campus sessions and work that will be completed via distance-learning or online. 
    • Summer courses WITH a required hands-on learning component will be conducted as HYBRID-LEARNING classes with some amount of DISTANCE-LEARNING or ONLINE utilized while having up to 75% of instruction delivered in-person in a small-group, social-distancing format at an Edison State location. 
    • Fall courses designated or referred to as SYNCHRONOUS-LEARNING sessions are ONLINE sections, whereby students are required to virtually attend the class during the meeting times indicated in MyESCC.
