Course Types

Cisco College offers the following types of credit courses. For more information about the requirements of a specific class, please review the syllabus or contact the instructor.

  • Face to Face

    In face-to-face courses, the instructor and students are in a physical location at the same time. At least 85% of course contact hours will be face-to-face. Some instructors may also request supplemental work that uses technology, such as online assessments, homework, or discussions. (Face-to-face courses have a location/room number on the course schedule.)

  • Online

    Students complete online courses using Canvas, Cisco College's Learning Management System (LMS). Within Canvas, students obtain course content, interact with their instructors and peers, and submit assignments. While at least 85% of instruction will take place online, some courses may also require proctored exams at a testing center or lab attendance. (Course schedule abbreviation = ONL)

  • Hybrid

    Hybrid courses provide a blended learning experience. Instruction, homework, and exams may take place through a combination of traditional and distance learning. Typically 16-50% of the course will take place in a face-to-face setting. For example, a 3-hour credit course might meet 8 to 24 hours throughout the semester, and a 4-hour credit course could meet 10 to 32 hours. The remaining course activities will be delivered using technology such as Canvas. (Course schedule abbreviation = HYB)

  • Virtual College of Texas (VCT)

    The Virtual College of Texas (VCT) is a collaboration of Texas community and technical colleges. Through VCT, Cisco College students have access to additional online credit courses. Because students register through Cisco College, they pay Cisco tuition and get Cisco credit. Students access VCT online courses through the provider college's LMS. To register for a VCT course, send an email to Include your full name, Student ID number, and the course you are needing. (Course schedule abbreviation = VCT)
