Students can take an online course when and where it is convenient for them and still have opportunities to interact with an instructor and other students. Online learning may be appropriate for students who are independent learners, highly self-motivated and interested in accelerating their course of study. Since the coursework can be completed any time of the day or night, it is ideal for those who are unable to attend on-campus classes. These classes expand learning opportunities while allowing students to balance educational demands with work and family. Students are expected to keep up with weekly assignments and participate in online discussions.
Online courses are offered through the Internet; some may require a proctored exam. Earn your entire associate degree online or select from an array of individual online courses in numerous academic disciplines.
