SWC offers a number of distance education classes in addition to classes held on campus. Some of these classes may be totally online, and some might be hybrid--a mix of online and face-to-face instruction.
You should be aware that your actual time commitment may exceed that of a regular on-ground class. However, if you are a motivated student with good writing skills, you have access to a computer with a stable Internet connection, and you are a motivated self-starter, online instruction may be a great fit for you!
To help you decide if online courses are a good choice for you, take this Online Readiness Quiz from Modesto Junior College!
Prior to enrolling in an online course, you must have already registered as a student at Southwestern College, and discussion distance education with your college counselor is also recommended.
