College in the High School

Fall 2018 Online Courses

The College in the High School program at Hudson Valley Community College offers online courses for students going into their junior or senior year and attending any New York State high school. Enrollment in these courses is limited to high school students.

Advantages of College in the High School online courses:

  • Online courses do not affect students' academic schedules. Students work on computers on their own schedule, logging in for the required number of sessions per week (varies by course).
  • Students who entered their junior or senior year in fall 2018 at any New York State high school are eligible to participate.
  • Courses are taught by Hudson Valley Community College faculty.

Requirements for College in the High School online courses:

Courses are managed in MyHudsonValley Portal/Blackboard. To test your system for compatibility, go to and click on Check System & Browser Requirements.

  • You must be able to budget your time and priorities. Online learning courses are NOT self-paced. They follow the semester calendar for registration, mid-terms, finals, etc. Homework and other assignments, tests and quizzes are due on a regular basis.

You can access the course at your convenience to complete your coursework each week following your class syllabus.
  • Instructional methods will depend on the course, but for most courses, all tests and finals as well as all assignments will be done online. Students will be expected to log on frequently and interact with their fellow students and the instructor.
