When are the online classes offered?
Online classes offer flexibility with those who juggle career and family. Up to 12 hours of synchronous (virtual face-to-face time with the instructor) hours will be scheduled during the evening after 5:30 or occasionally on a weekend. The rest of the time will be spent asynchronously as the student works on coursework on his/her own time.
When are the face-to-face classes offered
Our courses are offered face-to-face using the intensive weekend model. Courses are taught the entire weekend starting on Friday and ending on Sunday. Class times are Fridays (5:30 pm-8:30pm), Saturdays (8:30am-3:30pm) and Sundays (8:30am-2:30pm).
How many weekends do I attend to complete one course?
The graduate level courses are generally two credit courses and students attend one full weekend for every semester credit. STudents will complete a two credit course in two full weekends.
Do I need to do anything prior to class?
Some instructors require pre-assignments. Pre-assignments are posted on MyHeritage and reference in the course syllabus.
Heritage University has a cohort model, what is that?
Once a student starts the M.Ed. program they usually take all of their courses with thesame group of students.
Are courses offered multiple times during the school year?
Courses may be offered more than once a year in either an online or face-to-face model. Generally students will take classes at the closes regional site or from home.
Most students attend full time (6 graduate credits a semester) and complete the graduate program in five semesters.
Can I work while going to school?
Yes, it is understood that many of the graduate students work during the week while attending classes on the weekend or online.
Is financial aid available?
