Test Drive a Hybrid. On Base.

Many students want flexibility in their college courses, the convenience of an online class but with the opportunity to interact with instructors and fellow students in a face-to-face setting.  The solution? Hybrid classes at Thomas Nelson.  We’re offering several hybrid offerings on-base at Fort Eustis, beginning on March 12th.  Spend one night a week in the classroom—everything else is online.   Learn more by visiting our class schedule page or e-mail
