Online classes account for about 20% of SCS enrollment and are increasing in popularity. Because they do not have class meetings or face-to-face interaction to remind students about deadlines and due dates, online courses work best for those who are highly motivated and self-disciplined. Most have no scheduled meeting times; lessons, assignments and course documents are posted to a Blackboard Website.
Students may apply a maximum of 24 credit hours earned through distance learning toward the associate's degree and a maximum of 45 credit hours earned through distance learning toward the bachelor's degree.
Students may take no more than two online classes each semester, including summer.
