Classes are scheduled on Saturday and weekdays but there is no fixed class schedule for courses as this depends on number of students and overall Semestral course loading among faculty. Petition for class schedule may be requested but this is subject to complying with the minimum class size requirement (5 students) and also dependent on the availability of qualified faculty to teach the course.

Based on Office of the Chancellor Memorandum No. 087, Series of 2023, there are 3 learning delivery modes available. Distance education (M2) and Blended learning (M3) are the preferred modes to leverage on the use of technology in teaching and learning. These modalities complement the equally important face-to-face interaction and collaborative learning activities as part of the overall learning experience in all CPAf courses.
