Welcome to the Division of 
Evening and Distance Education

    The purpose of the division of Evening and Distance Education is to provide through traditional and alternative delivery systems academic credit classes on the main campus and at selected off-campus sites in support of the college's mission to increase access to higher education for the citizens of the region.

    Programs/courses are offered in both traditional and alternative delivery systems as follows: Evening SchoolOff-Campus ClassesWeekend College, Interactive Television (ITV)Distance Learning Online ProgramsAccelerated Studies Program (ASP), Regents On-Line Degree Program,(RODP), and Jump Start Advanced Studies Program.

    Classes provide lifelong learning opportunities to individuals seeking to attain career and personal development goals. Satellite campuses, local community facilities, public school sites, and various industrial locations are utilized to deliver classes in under-served communities.

    Admission requirements for evening and distance education students are identical with requirements for students in the regular daytime program. The quality of instruction governing credit courses offered during the evenings on-campus, at satellite locations, and through non-traditional program formats is maintained at the same level as those courses offered on campus during the day and is equivalent in all academic considerations.
