Online Courses are delivered entirely over the Internet and are the educational equivalent of traditionally delivered courses. The enticement of an online course is that your attendance on campus is not required. This allows you the flexibility to fit a college course into your busy schedule, saving time and travel expenses. Class is held when you have time whether early in the morning before work, after dinner, or after the late news.

Please note: some courses may have specific requirements such as proctored exams or require specific software packages. For more information on a specific course, please select the appropriate semester from the list below and then the specific course number.

Online Course Facts

  • All online courses have a definite beginning and ending date, the same as on-campus courses. You should logon and "attend" on the first day of classes.
