Flex Path is Smart Scheduling

Calendar and Clock icon

It’s a challenge for students to find classes they need in a time that works in their busy lives. Flex Path utilizes smart scheduling, with each class rotating across different time blocks term by term. With smart scheduling, you can focus on what matters most: moving forward on your educational journey!

For example, if you’re available Monday evenings, you’ll get a different course option in that time frame each 8-week period. So instead of rearranging work, family, or other obligations every semester to make room for when a class happens to be available, Flex Path ensures there’s always a course ready when you are!
