Are you interested in Online classes, but don't know what to expect?

Take a Mini-Byte and give it a try!

 A Mini-Byte class is a great way for you to give an online class a try before signing up for a full 16 week class.  This is a free opportunity and you do not have to be a student at GFC MSU.  Our faculty have put together a sample of a course which contains materials which you would see in the first week of an online course. This is completely free and all you have to do is follow the steps to create an account.  This lets you dip your toe in  and see if online classes are right for you.  To try a class, select the Try A Byte image at the bottom of the page and sign up for a free account.    If after trying the online class you wish to continue on and take the full course we’ll also help by paying your application fee if you complete one of the Mini-Bytes.
