Findlay students may have to travel to the Toledo-area campus on occasion to make use of special facilities, or to take more specialized classes.   Students may also have to take some classes online or in a hybrid format to complete their program of choice.  These situations may be minimized and/or managed through proactive planning and regular interaction with the student’s advisor.
