General DE Information
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) and fully online (instruction, distribution of course materials, discussions, assessments, and other course related activities are conducted outside the classroom environment using Internet based technology).
You are encouraged to complete the online students readiness quiz to determine if an online or hybrid course is a good match for you.
*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 personal are exempt.
