Work Towards A College Education
Why study by distance? Distance education increases access and flexibility for students. You can continue to work, parent and participate in community activities while working towards a college credential. You decide when and where you want to study. Telephone conferencing and internet resources provide additional contact and support. Learning by distance can involve a paper-based delivery, a blending of face-to-face and online delivery, or a completely online delivery.
Our virtual learning environments are open 24-7 and 365 days a year, meaning you decide when and where you want to study. We deliver a learning package and support materials right to your home, which includes all of the resources you’ll need for your course.
Our dedicated instructors are available by phone, email and online to answer questions and provide feedback.
