What can I expect in an online class?

Barclay offers flexible open enrollment that allows students to jump in at the beginning of any session during any semester! Classes open up every six weeks, so if the start date is too soon, the next session is right around the corner!

Students can do class assignments on their own time. Classes have requirements throughout the week, and students can work on their classwork any time of day. This schedule allows many of our online students to work full-time while being enrolled.

How do I get started?

Barclay College provides a free, one-week online orientation class that teaches you how to navigate the online portal, submit assignments, and interact with classmates. You are required to take the online orientation class before your first online class.

When can I start?

Classes start every six weeks, so you do not have to start at the beginning of a semester.

When do I need to be online for my coursework?

Classes have assignments that are due during the week, but you can do them in your own time. You will join discussions with professors and classmates, but those also can be done on your own schedule. Expect to spend 15-20 hours per week per class on assignments and discussions.

Do I need any special technology?

You will need reliable access to the internet. Chrome or Firefox browsers are recommended. A camera and microphone are required for conference calls.

Can I take more than one class at a time?

Yes. You must successfully complete at least one class before you can request approval to take two classes during any one session.

What do I have to do to enroll?

Apply! Our application is free and simple. Apply today so we can help you with your academic goals! In addition, the admissions staff will need references and transcripts to complete your file.

I'm a high school student. Can I take classes?

If you’re a high school junior or senior, you are eligible to enroll in one or more online courses each semester. Taking college classes while in high school introduces you to the rigors of a college education and can shorten your timeline for a college degree. You’ll take courses at a reduced rate for the first 30 credit hours. Online classes allow you to take courses on your own time and get a taste of college curriculum.
