The primary goal of distance education is to offer available, accessible, and affordable courses for transfer and career programs.

What is Distance Education?

Distance education is a formal educational process in which the majority of instruction and interaction in a course occurs when students and instructors are not in the same place. At present the majority of distance education courses at NACC are online courses.

Distance education courses at NACC are of the same quality and rigor as traditional courses. Distance education courses require 6-9 hours of study per week per course. If you are self-motivated, self-disciplined, communicate well through writing, and feel that quality learning can take place outside the traditional classroom, then NACC Distance Education may be your best avenue for a better future.

Students enrolling in Internet (Distance Education) classes are required to attend at least one class meeting on campus. In Blackboard, please see your course outline for the time and campus location.
