Distance Learning

  • Distance Learning (DL) classes are always an option but can present unique challenges compared to a lecture-based, face-to-face course.
  • Distance Learning (DL) means the class is online and there is no face-to-face instruction. DL courses are not self-paced.
  • Students must complete a mandatory orientation during the first week of the class. Students will receive a syllabus that will outline important dates & deadlines for assignments, readings, and exams.
  • Unless otherwise stated, most Distance Learning (DL) courses, including Online (ONL) classes, require you to take proctored exams at an ACC campus Testing Center.
