Online Course Information

What is an online course?

In an online course, course instruction, learning activities, and interactions between faculty and students take place online on a course Web site. 

Some online courses have required on-campus orientation sessions and a few online courses meet from one to four times per semester for up to 12 hours total for review sessions or other class activities. Additionally, many online courses require students to come to the HCC Test Center, or another approved test center, for proctored exams.  Check the Course Descriptions posted here for more information about "face-to-face" meetings your online course may require.
