Online Education

Courses Offered Online

Napa Valley College offers two forms of online classes.  Courses in the schedule as "online" meet exclusively online and do not require students to attend any class meetings on campus.  "Hybrid" classes meet both online and on campus.  Hybrid classes require students to meet one or more times on campus.  All available online and hybrid classes are listed in the college schedule.   You can review the current class schedule by clicking here.  You can also search for only online classes in WebAdvisor as follows:
  1. Click here to access WebAdvisor.
  2. Select the "term," or semester, you are interested in.
  3. Click on the drop down menu under "location" and select "online" or "hybrid."

This will provide you the most current information about online classes including those classes that start later in the semester.

Remember, look carefully in the schedule to see when you online course begins.  Many online classes are "short term" or "late start" and do not begin until 2 to 6 weeks after the regular semester begins. Most online classes do not require an orientation meeting and students are expected to log in and start the course on time.  If you are unsure of when your class begins, contact the Office of Admission and Records.

The following is a list of courses offered entirely online or in a hybrid format.
