How Do Weekend Degree Classes Work?

The majority of class will be spent in an online learning environment, however, designated meetings in a traditional classroom setting are scheduled either Friday night or Saturday during the day at least once a month/three times per quarter. These meetings are mandatory and missing them can adversely affect your grade.
