Online Courses

Online courses can be taken from any Internet-connected computer, making them a good alternative for those who live at a distance from the campus or cannot be on campus during regular class hours. Some Internet classes are "hybrid" courses, blending online with on-campus work. Please be sure that you can be available for the on-campus portion of this work.


Videoconferencing connects several classrooms in the County to offer real-time interactive learning. These classrooms allow students to be able to participate in classes at their locations, rather than having to drive many miles to a COS campus. See our list of Video Classroom Locations for contact information for each site.
