Distance Learning Program

(909) 274-5659

Distance Learning means taking classes that are conducted partially or entirely off-campus “at a distance.” Students and professors communicate with each other using a variety of technologies.

Distance Learning (DL) courses have the same content and academic rigor as regular courses; the only difference is the delivery method. Students should expect to spend as much time, sometimes more depending on the subject matter, reading, writing, and studying for DL courses as they would in regular courses.

In addition, students who manage their time well, log into DL courses regularly, submit completed work on time, and meet course expectations would do well in any course, but especially in DL courses. Communicating with the professor in a timely manner when there are questions or problems is also critical to student success.
