4:45 p.m.: Columbia College announces return to campus plan

Columbia College starts classes on August 31, but are letting students decide whether or not to be in-person or virtual, according to a news release.

The school is implementing High-Flex. The program allows a student to decide which days/classes to be in-person and which ones they will take virtually.

"For a class that meets three times a week, a student could elect to be in-seat – attending in a safe, socially distanced environment – on a particular Monday, choose to attend virtually on Wednesday, then be back in person on Friday," the release said.

The school said it is prepared for the transition because it has offered online classes since 2000.

"Classrooms are equipped with enhanced technology to better facilitate this hybrid model," the release said.
