Types of Classes

Find the class style for you.

Whether you're an online learner who needs to make room around your part-time work schedule or a commuter trying to maximize your time on campus, plan for a class style that makes the most sense for you. 


If you learn best with face-to-face interaction, in-person classes may be the best fit for you. Our small class sizes, rigorous academic environment, personal attention from faculty and guidance from academic advisors.


Anyone at SF can take an online course for more flexibility in scheduling. Online courses may have no on-campus requirements at all, or may include required exams that have to be taken in a face-to-face environment (i.e., proctored). Learn More.


Also referred to as blended courses, these mixed classes combine the best of both worlds. Typically, hybrid classes meet about half the amount of required hours in a classroom, and the rest of the work is done online. You'll still get to meet regularly with classmates and your instructor while significantly cutting down class and travel time. Learn More.
