Student Resources


Distance education is a convenient way to earn college credit, especially if you are too busy to commute to campus or your work hours make traditional college classes impossible.  Before you consider taking classes as a distance learner, it’s important to determine if you have the skills necessary for success and the appropriate technology required. As a Distance Education student, you are not out there alone.
