Grossmont is excited to offer the HyFlex modality for our students that enjoy flexibility.
A HyFlex course is taught on the same days and times, both on-campus and online. Students will have the flexibility to choose whether to attend each class in-person or online via ZOOM. The instructor teaches the class section on campus while also engaging with students online.
Some HyFlex sections may require in-person attendance for some class sessions, so be sure to check the class schedule on Self-Service. If the teacher does require attendance on specific dates, those will be listed clearly in Self-Service.
In Self-Service you can search specifically for HyFlex courses in the “Course Type” drop-down menu.
Look for this icon next to the course title:
If the icon is there, you will know that this is a HyFlex course!
Even though their names may sound similar, they are NOT the same type of course. A Hybrid course will have some combination of scheduled in-person meetings and asynchronous online coursework.
For example, a Hybrid course may meet once a week or once every other week on-campus in person (without a live zoom option) and then between in-person meetings be conducted online via recorded video lectures, discussion boards, etc.
Check Self-Service to find out the specific days/times for these classes. Be sure to click “HyFlex” in the “Course Type” drop-down menu at the bottom of the page!
“This course has been helpful for me as a first-time college student to be able to navigate and manage my courses.”
“My medical conditions make hard to predict how will I feel during the day, and I prefer to take as much online classes as possible, and only attend in-person classes if there is no other option available”
“I sometimes like to go in person, but it can also be very draining mentally for me to go so I love having the option to go in person or to stay online. Plus, I get sick somewhat frequently and being able to not miss class and miss out on knowledge, points and due dates while sick has helped me *a l o t*. I wish more classes were hyflex.”
“I live to far away to attend in person so joining on zoom is very helpful”
This is a difficult question because the idea of the HyFlex class is that it’s both! Students have the flexibility to choose whether to attend the class online or in-person. Different organizations, however, have classified these courses as either “in-person” and “online.”
*If you are a student who needs to take “in-person” courses – to receive federal VA benefits, to maintain your visa/immigration status as an International student, to qualify to transfer to a particular university or be eligible for a particular loan, you should speak to your counselor before registering for a HyFlex course.
