  •  Online - 1 credit – 06/14/2021 – 07/25/2021

  • Due to the nature of this course (online) we encourage you to bring your laptop.
Next Steps
  • Students who have a CDL will not be required to register for LNWK 104 but must complete the prior learning process. The Alternative Learning Coordinator will assist students with this process the first week of fall semester classes.
