Guide to USING THE ONLINE course list:

Please note that course offerings may change and lists may be updated, so it is helpful to check back regularly.

In keeping with the five institutions' plans to limit campus access to only their own students, faculty, and staff, all Five College students who register for a course on another campus during the 2020-21 academic year will be required to attend classes remotely

Please check the Five College Academic Calendar for important dates on each campus.
