What to Expect from an Asynchronous Class with Hugo House:

Asynchronous classes are perfect for students that need flexibility! 

During an asynchronous class, instructors release new lessons once per week. Students then have one week to complete that lesson and any accompanying coursework. You'll learn as much as you would in a traditional class but with the flexibility to work at the best times for your schedule!
