Course Format

When we say our programs are flexible, we mean it.

Our adult undergraduate programs were designed with you in mind. We've built a schedule that can adjust as you need it to, without affecting your completion date. We know you're busy and have obligations outside of the classroom, and we value your time. That's why our flexible learning options allow you to have the option to choose between online and in-person options depending on how you prefer to learn and what fits your schedule. Want to try both? No problem. We can work to customize a plan that fits your needs. 

  • Online: Students who choose to attend classes online will attend remotely via Zoom or another videoconferencing program.
  • In person: Students attending in person will have class on campus in North Spokane or at the U-District location, depending on the program.

Our adult evening programs are built in an accelerated format – six-week, nine-week and 12-week courses. You concentrate on just one course at a time, allowing you to focus your study and retain more of what you learn. Classes meet either one night per week and a couple of Saturdays, two nights per week and no Saturdays, or in a hybrid format with less class time and more online content.

"We’re both USAF Veterans, parents of two toddlers and now Whitworth students. Because of Whitworth’s night program, my husband can work full time and go to school, and I’m blessed to be a full-time mom and full-time student without needing childcare."

Hybrid Courses

Hybrid-format courses combine face-to-face class time with the flexibility of online learning, so you attend class less frequently and can still manage your already-busy schedule. Some course material and learning activities are moved online, reducing the amount of time you physically spend in the classroom.

Our hybrid classes usually meet three to five times during each six-week course, with instructor and student engagement online between class sessions.
