Distance Education

Department Home

If you are independent, self-directed, and self-motivated, then an online or hybrid course may be for you.Distance Education is a way for students who work and/or have family obligations to earn college credits without coming to campus for classes. If you are independent, self-directed, and self-motivated, then an online or hybrid course may be for you. Distance Education courses may include hybrid courses in which any portion of the in-person instructional classroom time is conducted using online activities. Or classes may be offered fully online with instruction, distribution of course materials, discussions, assessments, and other course related activities conducted outside the classroom environment using Internet based technology.

You are encouraged to complete the optional Online Readiness Quiz to determine if an online or hybrid course is a good match for you. This quiz is a self-assessment tool to guide you through concerns you may have about taking an online course.

Note: Effective July 1, 2015, the United States Department of Education requires that the Los Angeles Community College District/colleges obtain approval from each out-of-state student’s state of residency before he/she may enroll in an online course. Out-of-State students not residing in California, and for which the College does not have a current State Authorization Agreement, will be excluded. Active military personnel are exempt.
