Distance Education

Landscape shot of the Blue Ridge ParkwayDesigned around the needs of the individual, Mayland Community College’s distance education experience allows the student to participate in the curriculum and pursue education more conveniently, without the constraints of being on campus or following a designated class schedule.

This form of learning is increasingly popular, freeing students to fit college courses into a hectic and challenging lifestyle. It also provides an individual the accessibility to pursue education when physical travel is not easy. To ensure accessibility, we offer a variety of options for distance education:

  1. Internet courses are taught wholly online.
  2. Blended courses are a mix of primarily face-to-face meetings with some required online learning.
  3. Hybrid courses are a mix of primarily online learning with some required face-to-face meetings.
  4. Independent study courses are usually offered for one student to work with one instructor.

Be sure and ask your adviser if Distance Education courses would be a good fit for you.
