At Herzing College we realize that while some students prefer to attend regular classes at our campus, there are other students who prefer to work in an online learning environment to best accommodate their schedules. It was from this that we developed our Flex-Ed (flexible education) concept. Education, your way. Typically you work your schedule around school, but what if school could work around you?
Our Flex-Ed program format offers the best of both worlds. A convenient online learning environment with the option to work at the campus and receive support from your instructor. Students can choose to work completely or partially online and come to the campus during set hours each day to meet with their instructor and use our facilities.
