Courses

ACC Distance Education offers three types of courses to choose from:

ONL (Online)

Course instruction is online. Tests may also be taken online. Some tests may require proctoring. Students can access online proctoring on their own computer for a fee of approximately $20/hour, in-person proctoring at an approved testing site that may charge a fee, or in-person proctoring at an ACC Instructional Testing Center for free. Online courses eliminate geography as a factor.

DLC (Campus testing required)

Course instruction is online. Tests must be taken in an ACC Instructional Testing Center. Distance testing is not allowed. Students need to be aware of the on-campus testing requirement when registering.

HYD (Hybrid)

Most course instruction is online (more than 50%). There is at least one mandatory on-campus component (e.g.; on-site orientation, lab work, meetings, testing in an Instructional Testing Center). Distance testing may be allowed. Students need to be aware of the on-campus requirement when registering.

Course Schedule

Review the section note and syllabus in the Schedule to verify requirements and orientation instructions for individual classes. All distance education courses require an orientation.

NOTE: For the latest distance education course availability log into self-service student planning.

Evaluation

It is important for students to submit an evaluation of their distance education learning experience to help improve distance education at ACC. Visit the ACC Online Evaluation page for instructions on how to submit your online course evaluation.
