Instructor notes: The course has two required exams that are taken at the Academic Proctoring Center, located on both the Oceanside and San Elijo MiraCosta campuses. Please note that this is why the class is listed as Hybrid; the rest of the class is entirely online. Distance proctoring can also be arranged with our Academic Proctoring Center. Text information is available on SURF. To save money, look into renting and etexts. There will be a copy of the text on Reserve at the Oceanside campus library. I will open up Bb early Monday morning Jan 27. Remember it's a late start class.
