It is recommended that you plan to spend five hours a week working on this course. You may attend any of the hours that the Center is open. At the time of registration, you should plan your schedule so that you will complete the course.
To record your hours of attendance, you will “log in” and “log out” on our login computer as you enter the OAC. Experience has shown that students who can attend several times a week do better than students who have irregular attendance.
