Courses with hands-on and/or specialized equipment requirements

Unfortunately, there are a small percentage of our courses that cannot be completed effectively through remote instruction. You may receive a grade of “Incomplete” until the remaining course components can be safely completed. Tentatively, opportunities will be provided during May and Summer to complete your coursework. You will be notified directly if this affects you.
