Alternate Program

The Alternate Program (or Alternate Plan) is designed to offer students the opportunities alternately to attend college and/or work. This is ideal for students who need to take a semester off for work.

Students are limited to one other class during the semester and must complete all assignments as usual. Students can earn up 8 units in one semester.

The Alternate Program may not be used consecutively - hence the term "alternating".
