The goal of the Distance Learning Department is to provide a convenient alternative to the traditional on-campus method of instruction. Sometimes referred to as “anytime… anywhere” or “pajama” learning, distance education – often referred to as online learning – provides students with the flexibility to pursue an education around the challenges of everyday life. While convenient for the student, online learning maintains the same level of rigor as its on-campus counterpart

Columbus Technical College provides distance education both “by the course” and “by the program”. Each semester, the College offers a varied selection of online courses. The offerings allow students to mix traditional and online courses to complete academic program. The College also offers a select group of academic programs that you can take totally online. These programs are at the degree, diploma and technical certificate levels. The great advantage to this group of programs is that students can complete their education locally or at a distance.
