Residential courses extend over the fall and spring semesters with a break in the middle of each semester during module weeks. To make these courses available for distance students, many residence classes are live-streamed. (Click icons for more information.)

Select residential, module, and evening flex classes are live-streamed, making it possible for students to interact with a class in real-time from anywhere in the world. Provides for better interaction with professors and other students for those who are not able to take classes in-residence. 

Online courses allow the convenience of working in an asynchronous program, meaning students do not typically meet at prescribed times; rather, most tasks take place on a week-by-week basis for the entire seven-week period. Some online courses, such as Greek and Hebrew, are covered over fourteen weeks.

Modules classes consist of one week of intensive classroom instruction, preceded and followed by six-weeks of distant course work. This format combines the flexibility of an online program with the benefit of resident instruction. Module weeks are offered during the fall and spring semesters, and sometimes in the summer. For some modules, the week of residence instruction may even be offered through live-stream as well. 

Students with day jobs can take classes on Monday and Thursday evenings. It is possible to take up to five credit hours in this format, with two-credit classes meeting for one hour and three-credit classes meeting for two hours. Many of these courses will be live-streamed as well.
