Welcome to Distance Learning at SWOCC!


Distance education at Southwestern provides you with the opportunity to take classes off campus, allowing you to work around work and home schedules.

Using the Internet and our web-based Learning Management System, students can receive weekly lectures, complete assignments and take tests. You also can participate in online discussions, follow web links to sites of interest for class, and communicate - all in a virtual classroom setting.

Successful eLearning students can be active in class on a regular basis just like a face-to-face class. Taking courses through distance learning is not easier, but it does allow more flexibility in your schedule. It saves travel time and brings education to you wherever you are.

In addition to a variety of online courses to choose from, Southwestern also offers two fully online degrees: Digital Design and Childhood Education and Family Studies.

Let's talk and find a pathway that's right for you!
