Getting Started

Online Learning Courses

LTCC's Online Learning classes come in two forms:

Online courses are offered entirely online with no required class meetings on campus. Online courses are referred to as ONLINE classes in the schedule which means the class is 100% online--no face-to-face meetings required.

Hybrid courses combine some percentage of class time on campus and online.  The requirement varies from class to class - you may be asked to come to campus weekly, once for an orientation, or to take exams. Hybrid courses provide class meeting information for both on-campus day(s)/time/location and Days TBA, Times TBA, Online-LTCC, Room CANVAS.
