Online Learning Resources

CBC is committed to providing students with support and resources to be successful. We are here to support your online learning!

Yes. If you do not wish to fill out CBC's vaccination attestation, you may choose to study as an "online-only" student.

This process is not as simple as just registering for only online classes.

If you plan to enroll in online-only classes and will not participate in CBC in-person activities or services (e.g., tutoring, Hawk Central, advising, Fitness Center, Bookstore, or Library), you may forgo the attestation process, however a block will be placed on your account. This option requires you to meet virtually with Counseling & Advising or Transitional Studies staff to confirm your intent to study exclusively online and complete the registration process each quarter. 

Schedule an appointment to discuss this option with either Counseling & Advising or Transitional Studies (if you’re a student in ABE, ELA or High School Completion). 

Counseling & Advising

Transitional Studies

"Online-only" students are not able to  participate in CBC in-person activities or services (e.g., tutoring, Hawk Central, advising, Fitness Center, Bookstore, or Library). Of course, these on-campus experiences are available to online students who are fully vaccinated or elect a religious or medical exemption.

Connecting to Class

Students can access Canvas through their desktop and laptop computers as well as mobile devices, such as smart phones and tablets. Some activities, such as quizzes or exams and composing longer texts are better done on desktop or laptop computers.

Connect directly to Canvas.
