We know that your life is busy. Between your job, family, hobbies and hanging out with friends, trying to fit in a college education just doesn’t seem possible! At Spoon River College, you can mix and match the following course delivery and scheduling options to create the course schedule that fits your learning preferences to complete your program of study.

Course Scheduling Options

16-week courses – a course that runs for one semester

12-week courses – a course that has a delayed start by 4 weeks and continues until the end of the semester

8-week courses – a course that runs half of a semester

3-week course – a course that typically runs in January or August before Spring and Fall semesters begin. We call these “mini-mester” courses.

NOTE: Be sure to check the course’s Begin Date when you are registering.

Course Delivery Options:

Traditional Courses
In-person Courses are face-to-face courses that meet in a physical classroom 1-4 times a week at one of the college’s four locations: Canton, Macomb, Havana, or Rushville. In-person courses also utilize the College’s learning management system (LMS) with access to the course syllabus, content, assignments, and grades. In-person courses can occur in a regular classroom or an Interactive Video System (IVS) classroom that uses two-way video and audio to connect to each campus site.


Hybrid Courses are a blend of in-person and online instruction. About one-half of the coursework is completed through the College’s LMS. As a result, the amount of in-person classroom time is reduced. For example, a 3-credit hour course that typically meets twice a week in person would only meet once a week in the classroom and then complete activities, such as assignments and discussions online. Hybrid courses can occur in a regular classroom or an Interactive Video System (IVS) classroom that uses two-way video and audio to connect to each campus site.


Online Courses are completed through the College’s LMS and require an internet connection. These courses typically involve the use of various technologies, such as multimedia presentations, interactive simulations or projects, discussion forums, and online assessments. They are not independent study courses. Students will interact with faculty and each other through a variety of methods.


Online Course Exchange
Online Course Exchange (OCE) is an agreement that Spoon River College has with Illinois Community Colleges Online (ILCCO), an organization of several other accredited community colleges within Illinois that offer online learning. If you would like to take a specific course online that Spoon River College does not offer, ask your advisor to search the ICE course listings to see if the course is available at a partnering institution.
