Summer 2020 at Highline College

Although no in-person classes will be held on campus, classes continue…virtually and online!

As with spring quarter, we’re doing things differently to adjust to the COVID-19 pandemic and social distancing. There will be no in-person instruction on campus with the possible exception of a few allied health programs.

Instead, classes will be held remotely using a combination of online tools, including Canvas and Zoom — the popular, free videoconferencing tool. But don’t worry, we’ll still be offering a full array of college-level classes to help you meet your educational goals.

New student registration has begun. Visit the Admissions site to begin the admissions process. Once you’ve been accepted to Highline, view registration steps to get registered and select your classes.

As you view the summer class schedule, you’ll see classes are designated in one of three ways: virtual, hybrid/virtual or online. Here’s what those designations mean:

  • Virtual: Your class will meet on Zoom at the time listed in the class schedule. For example, if your class begins at 9 a.m. in the class schedule, then it will begin at 9 a.m. on Zoom. You will be attending the class at the same time as your classmates, just as you would on campus.
  • Hybrid/Virtual: Class times are listed in the class schedule. The portions of the hybrid course that would have occurred on campus will now be offered on Zoom. The rest of the course will be online.
  • Online: These classes don’t have a set time to attend, as virtual classes do. You can view video lectures whenever is convenient to you.

Got questions? Need to talk with someone? We’ve got you covered.

    What about Fall Quarter?

    We are hoping to resume in-person classes during fall quarter. But in light of the uncertainty, we are scheduling our class delivery methods with flexibility in mind. Classes for fall quarter are designated in these five ways:

  • Face-to-Face: Class times are designated in the schedule and will be held on campus. Based on the state’s response to COVID-19, these courses may shift to virtual or hybrid/virtual using Zoom. Instructors will update students prior to the start of fall quarter.
  • Virtual: Students will virtually attend class at the time listed in the class schedule. For example, if a class begins at 9 a.m. in the class schedule, then it will begin at 9 a.m. on Zoom.
  • Hybrid: Part of the class will be held online without a set time to attend. The other part will occur in a face-to-face format on campus at the time listed in the class schedule. If on-campus instruction is not yet allowed by fall quarter, then in-person instruction will switch to virtual using Zoom. Instructors will update students prior to the start of fall quarter.
  • Hybrid/Virtual: Part of the class will be held online without a set time to attend. The other part will occur at the time listed in the class schedule, either in a face-to-face format on campus or in a virtual format using Zoom, depending on the state’s response to COVID-19. Instructors will update students prior to the start of fall quarter.
  • Online: These classes don’t have a set time to attend like virtual classes do. They do have deadlines throughout the quarter, but offer more day-to-day flexibility.
  • Correspondence: Classes will use packets of activities and content sent between the instructor and student via surface mail.
