Distance Learning is for students who cannot come to campus or prefer a flexible schedule.
"I am the mother of a 20-month-old girl, and because I am a stay-at-home mom, online classes are a necessity. I would not be able to maintain a full-time status if I didn't have the opportunity to take online courses." - TP

Online Continuing Education Courses Promote Professional Growth
"Your Distance Learning has been a lifesaver. I am a police officer from Elizabethtown, North Carolina and am currently in the military in Afghanistan. I was not able to take the mandated in-service training in person. Your online program is making it possible for me to serve my country overseas." - RG, Jalalabad Regional Commander
