Instructor notes: The course has two required exams that are taken at the Academic Proctoring Center, located on both the Oceanside and San Elijo MiraCosta campuses. Please note that this is why the class is listed as Hybrid; the rest of the class is entirely online. If you live out of this area, then contact the Academic Proctoring Center and they will help you locate a proctor in your area. Text information is available on SURF. To save money, look into renting and using etexts. There is an edition of the text at the MCC Library, Oceanside campus, on reserve. I will send out a welcome and information handout to all on the roster around Jan 13. I will open up Canvas late Monday Jan 20. I look forward to working with you this spring.
