Types of Classes


Traditional classes require students to attend lectures or labs while on campus. Students may take traditional classes during the day or evening. Traditional classes meet at a set time and place during the academic terms.


You will have access to your online or hybrid course(s) on the first day of each term. You can access your course(s) from a Quick Link in the myClarkState student portal. Clark State is now using Blackboard as its learning management system.

Your initial password for logging in is the two digits of your birth month, the four digits of your birth year and the last four digits of your social security number. For instance, a person who was born in February, 1989 and the last four digits of their social security number are 3333. Their initial password is 0219893333.

You will be prompted to change your password the first time you log in. If you need assistance logging in, please contact the IT help center.

Your Username and Password are for your use only. Please keep them safe and don’t share them with others.


Hybrid classes combine the elements of online and traditional courses together. These courses require attendance at scheduled on-campus or clinical locations for lectures, labs or clinical experiences. The amount of time spent in the face-to-face setting will be about 50 percent of what is required in a traditional course.
