Why SLCC Online

SLCC Online has offered online education for over 20 years, with the first online class launched in 1995. Today, nearly 10,000 students a semester choose to meet all or some of their learning online.

Among the many reasons students choose to take SLCC Online courses, SLCC Online offers:

Our online courses and programs are effective, flexible and smart. Unlike a standard online lecture, we strive to provide courses that are highly interactive and engaging. This structure also facilitates interaction with quality faculty and peers to encourage learning through collaboration.

We know college can be expensive. As a result, we strive to keep the cost of SLCC Online as low as possible. With the same tuition rate of classroom courses, we are one of the best values locally and regionally. In addition, we are constantly working with academic departments to identify open education resources to reduce or eliminate the cost of textbooks and other learning materials. Take these savings and apply them to your next class or degree, or perhaps a reward for accomplishing your educational goals. You deserve it.

At SLCC Online, you will have access to a success coach and advisors who can help you select courses, direct you to support resources and ensure you’re on track to meet your educational goals. We are here to help you get to the next step.

We can help ensure that your hard-earned credits will transfer over when you decide to enroll. One way to guarantee transfer is to complete your associate degree at SLCC, allowing your credits to transfer fully, without course by course articulation. We are here to help guide you through this process.

As an online student, your focus should be on learning rather than knowing how to navigate your courses. We strive to ensure a consistent experience throughout all of our offerings, enabling you to dive right into your area of study.

Each of our offerings is designed by a team of subject experts (faculty), instructional designers, technologists, media developers, and assessment specialists. We are passionate about improvement and regularly work to ensure that your experience is the best it can be.
