Online Summer Classes

Online Summer Classes

Several Cal Poly courses will be taught in an online format and will not have meetings on-campus. Instead, some of the courses may require that you take midterm and final examinations at a local testing center (NCTA participant or community college).

Note: Classes labelled as "Online Synchronous" have set class times that students must be present for, while "Online Asynchronous" classes don't require such obligations and allows for self-paced coursework.

To view all details about these courses (instructors, number of students enrolled, etc.), please look them up on Plan a Student Schedule (PASS).
