How do I register for a distance education class? Review the Registration Procedures to begin the registration process. 
Can I take a distance education course while I am away for the summer?

What courses are available at a distance or online? View the Off Campus by Site Courses and the Internet Courses listed in iRoar to see a list of all the courses that are offered completely online and by distance. 
Are distance education courses self paced? Some of our distance education courses do meet during scheduled time periods like face to face classes.  Instead of meeting in person on campus, they meet live via the internet.  Please be sure to look at the Days, Time, and Location column in iRoar to determine if the class you are registering for has scheduled meeting dates & times.  Contact the instructor if you are unsure.
I have heard courses offered via distance education are easy is that true? A common misconception of distance education courses is that they are easier.  The truth of the matter is that learning from a distance requires students to be a lot more focused.  It can in some cases require more time than that of a traditional face to face.  Before you enroll in one of our distance education classes we encourage you to complete the SORT (Student Online Readiness Tool) that was created by the University System of Georgia.  This will help you in determining if you are prepared for taking classes online.
