Corporate College FAQs

How Does Online Learning Work?

Everything that you need to be successful in these courses is provided to you through the CANVAS online learning platform. Your instructor will hold a ZOOM online meeting to provide an overview and orientation to the class, and will send out weekly announcements to keep you on track with what you will be working on each week. When you sign in to the course CANVAS, you will follow weekly units to access reading materials, Power Point presentations, Youtube Videos, and to submit your homework assignments.

Hybrid courses operate the same way, with the exception that class meetings are in person on the Grossmont College campus. Students will be provided with the classroom assignment at the same time that credentials for accession the course CANVAS are sent via email. 

I Work Full Time- Will I Be Able to Attend Class?

Our courses are designed so that students are able to complete course work within their own schedules. Each week there are readings and assignments to be completed by midnight on each Sunday night. Although each assignment has a date that it is due, the work can be completed at any time as long as it is submitted by the due date.

How Often Does Class Meet?

FULLY ONLINE COURSES: Virtual Classroom meetings via ZOOM will take place on select evenings. For the RSS1 classes, meetings take place at 6:00PM-8:00PM during the first, third, fifth, and eighth weeks. The RSS3 classmeetings take place at 6:00PM- 8:00PM during the first, fourth, eighth, and twelfth weeks. Classes meet on Monday the first week, with meetings on Thursday evenings during the fourth, eighth, and twelfth weeks of class. For the RSS2 class, virtual meetings take place on Monday evenings at 6PM-8PM during the first, third, fifth, and seventh weeks. If there are any changes to the meeting schedule, your instructor will inform you during the first class meeting. 

HYBRID COURSES: Meet on the Grossmont Campus on select evenings from 6:00PM-8PM during the first, third, and eithth weeks. Classroom assignments will be announced prior to the first night of class.

Student Parking: for the 2024-25 school year, students do NOT need to purchase permits and will not be ticketed AS LONG AS they park in a student parking space (unmarked space between two white lines).

What Happens After I Register for Class?

When you register through Eventbrite, you will receive a message with a confirmation number. This registration information will be used by Corporate College staff to input your information into the Grossmont/Cuyamaca Community College District database, and add you to the course roster.

One to two weeks prior to class beginning, you will receive an E-mail from Janice Melroy letting you know that you have been added into the online class. She will provide instructions for logging in to the CANVAS learning platform. Usually within a week of the start of class, you will receive a Welcome message from your instructor with information about logging into class, as well as information regarding the ZOOM meeting for the first night of class. If you are enrolled in a HYBRID course, you will also be given the classroom assignment for class meetings at this time.
