Online learning, called ‘E-Learning’ at Southwestern Community College includes several associate’s degree programs and certificates for the convenience and flexibility of students who would otherwise not be able to attend campus for classes. Whether bound by schedule commitments or prohibited by geography, Southwestern Community College introduces E-Learning with a self-assessment survey to determine the suitability of distance learning and articulate the hardware requirements for successful completion of the program. A sample online class is available to provide an actual example of what to expect from distance learning. Online degrees offered include a general arts degree for transfer, business with several disciplines available, computer information technology, cyber crime technology, information technology with multiple disciplines, medical office administration and web technologies. A links page provides access to available resources and support services for distance students.
