Distance Education

LA City College's distance education courses provide students the opportunity to take classes at times and locations convenient to them.

Distance education is a way of for students who work, and/or have family obligations to gain college credits without coming to campus for classes. If you are a student who is independent, self-directed and self-motivated, then an online or hybrid course may be for you.  You are strongly encouraged to complete the “Online Students Readiness Quiz” to determine if an online or hybrid course is a good match for you. 

Distance Education Courses may include hybrid, which describes courses in which any portion of the in-person instructional classroom time is conducted using online activities; and fully online, in which the instruction, distribution of course materials, discussions, assessments, and other course related activities are conducted outside the classroom environment using Internet based technology.
