FAQs

What happens if I can't maintain an 80% in my FlexPace course?

If you fall below an 80% in your course, you may still complete the course. You will be awarded the grade you have earned, but you may not be able to take any more FlexPace courses. For example, if you are only earning a 65% in your FlexPace course, you will pass the course with that 65%. You will no longer be allowed multiple attempts to complete assignments; your first attempt will be your final grade.

If I want to try a FlexPace course, do I have to take all my courses in that format?

No, you may register for any combination of FlexPace, SinclairOnline, and face-to-face courses that you wish.

Do I need any special software or books for FlexPace courses?

FlexPace courses require the same books as traditional courses. You will, however, need access to a computer with a reliable internet connection. Information about the software needed for your FlexPace course is provided within the course syllabus.

When can I start my FlexPace courses?

After you finish your admissions requirements, you may register for your FlexPace courses and start in the next section, which begins every other Monday during the first 12 weeks of the fall and spring terms and the first 10 weeks of the summer term. Courses begin every other Monday for the first 12 weeks of the semester.

Can I take an individual Sinclair FlexPace course, or do I have to pick an entire program?
