  University Transfer Resources Enrollment Policies - Liberal Arts Division  

The faculty in the Liberal Arts Division, with Masters and Doctorate Degrees from prominent universities, have expertise in many academic fields. They utilize this expertise with the fundamental purpose of helping students to reach and achieve their university transfer goals. The Liberal Arts Division, like Wake Tech Community College overall, takes pride in its faculty's innovative and passionate promotion of student success.

We are committed to scheduling our courses in various modes of delivery to meet students' degree, diploma, career, and other needs. Our courses are taught in online format, traditional seated/on-campus format, hybrid format, and blended format. With hybrid courses, greater than 50% and less than 100% of the course is taught in an online/distance format while the remainder of the course is taught on campus in a classroom environment. In the Fall 2021 semester, we have scheduled our courses in online, traditional seated/on-campus, hybrid, and blended modes of delivery. Our faculty are very proficient in online teaching, with over 90% of our division faculty having already earned EPIC certification, which is Wake Tech's online course certification program for college faculty.
