Instructor notes: This course has one required exam that is taken at the Academic Proctoring Center, located on both the Oceanside and San Elijo MiraCosta campuses with distance proctoring to be arranged with the Academic Proctoring Center. Please note that this is why the class is listed as Hybrid; the rest of the class is entirely online. Text information is available on SURF. To save money, look into renting and etexts. I will open up Bb early Monday Jan 28 as this is a late-start class.
