Distance Learning provides educational opportunities that are not limited to the time and space constraints of traditional classes. Online instructors utilize a wide variety of tools such as online lectures, assignments, tests, discussion forums, and streaming video.
Take note: Some online courses require on-campus meetings. The Syllabus for your course contains detailed information such as where your class is hosted, requirements, deadlines, and the instructor's contact information. Please check the course information below.
For information on transferable courses or fulfilling prerequisites please contact Counseling.
