Open Entry/Open Exit Courses

Distance Learning

Open Entry/Open Exit (OE/OE) courses provide an alternative to traditional classroom learning. OE/OE students have greater control over their learning schedules and can complete a course in several weeks, a month or a semester. Students do not attend regular classes or lectures. Students can complete these self-paced courses at home, in the college’s computer labs, or in the OE/OE lab where instructors are available for help during posted hours. OE/OE learning may be appropriate for students who are independent learners, highly self-motivated and interested in accelerating their course of study.

All students registering for the OE/OE program must attend a mandatory on-campus orientation with their instructor before beginning coursework. During orientation students will be provided information regarding course requirements, important dates, and how coursework is to be submitted. Orientation information for each semester can be found online. Students may register for OE/OE classes up to the seventh week of the fall and winter semesters. Spring and Summer courses are offered in a seven- or twelve-week format. All coursework must be completed by semester’s end. OE/OE courses are offered through the Internet; however, at least one on-campus assessment is required.
