Some courses are offered through correspondence, which is recommended for students without access to the internet. Students follow a study guide and mail in their completed assignments for instructors to grade.
Distance Education courses can be synchronous or asynchronous. The first is similar to a traditional class where all the students meet at a pre-determined time. Asynchronous allows students who may be in other time zones or can’t meet during regular class times to work on the course when it best fits their schedule.
Courses offered through distance learning cover the same learning objectives as on-campus courses and, upon completion, grant the same amount of credit.
