Online classes are taught by the same outstanding faculty members who teach at the SCC and SFCC campuses.

An online student is no different from a student taking classes on campus. Your diploma and transcripts look the same whether you take your program in an online, hybrid, or face-to-face format.

You also apply to college the same way. Once you select your program, apply at either SCC or SFCC

There are various ways to take classes other than in-person. These are referred to as modalities or modes of instruction. Some common definitions are below. 

  • Online: A course that uses web-based tools and where 100 percent of the instruction and interaction between instructor and student is done online. (Proctored exams still allow for this classification.)

  • Hybrid: A course that replaces some, but not all face-to-face time with web-based tools. In other words, a mix of in-person and on-campus components.

While not self-paced, most classes allow you to work on your own schedule throughout the week. Some classes require that you login at certain times, so be sure to check the class description and notes before registering.
