What if I miss a class?
Teachers take attendance in each class and students are expected to attend or notify in advance if they cannot be present. Those taking one-on-one classes have the opportunity to reschedule some classes given prior notice. Those in group classes would only be able to reschedule a class if all students in the group placed a request; otherwise, if some students from a group miss the class, they can follow up with the teacher about what material was covered and conduct self-study.
How many weeks do online courses run?
Most of our courses have 36 hours of class time per semester, and 72 hours of class time per year. The duration of the course will be determined by the frequency of classes. For example, an intensive one-semester summer course (36 hours) would stretch over 6 weeks if the students were to take 6 hours of classes per week (36 divided by 6 equals 6), and over 8 weeks if the student were to take 4 hours per week (36 divided by 4 equals 8), etc.
