These courses may only have a maximum of 49% of the total interaction time between student and faculty being online with the remaining 51% of time devoted to face-to-face/in classroom interaction as required by the A.T.S. acrediting body. These courses and/or course material(s) are produced by an RTS Faculty member under the authority of the originating Campus Academic Dean and, as such, follow the Academic Calendar for said originating RTS Campus.
