Online Education

Pennsylvania’s community colleges offer online education courses to enable students to access higher education opportunities anywhere, anytime.

Online education courses and programs are academically equivalent and are no easier or less time-consuming than traditional on-campus courses. The major difference lies in a delivery mode that allows you to complete coursework according to your schedule, independent of scheduled on-campus classes. Online education students are self-motivated, highly-disciplined, eager to learn and are familiar with the technologies needed to complete each course, such as the Internet, chat sessions and e-mail.
