District Of Columbia Online Colleges and Universities

Online Colleges in District of Columbia

Overview

Online degree programs have several advantages compared to traditional campus-based colleges. Online education allows students to take courses with flexible scheduling and to access programs that may not be offered at local colleges or universities. For people wondering how online education works, students access the classroom over the internet.

Students typically access lectures and download assignments through an online portal, which acts as the student's educational homepage. To foster student-teacher and student-student interactions, most online programs require a minimum amount of participation in online chat sessions. For lectures, some courses have set times that students must attend, while other courses have flexible scheduling where students can download the lectures and study on their own time. Exam types also vary by class and teacher. Some teachers require students to complete tests online in a set time period, while others allow students to submit completed exams through the portal or email.

With the increased popularity of online education, more and more choices are available for students who want to earn their degree online. For more information about online degree programs, see our list of online colleges below. To speak with an admissions counselor, click the request information button and we will send your contact information to the school of your choice. Several good questions to ask an admissions counselor include: how do students access lectures, how do students take tests and how much do students interact with teachers and fellow classmates.

Accreditations and affiliations: when speaking with an admissions counselor be sure to ask about the types of accreditations and affiliations the school has completed.
