Distance Learning

Distance Learning (DL) courses are designed for people with scheduling problems and busy lifestyles. Instead of attending face-to-face courses, students use the Transitional Learning Center’s DL system to work independently. There are no limits to the total number of courses that can be taken. The courses are module designed for an easy learning platform and GED completion. Students have the same rights, privileges and obligations as remote/virtual learning students. Distance Learning courses have the same academic demands and rigor as face-to-face courses with assignment deadlines and scheduled time periods for progress testing and GED testing.
