Noncredit Continuing Education @ a Distance

Noncredit online courses provide a convenient and economical approach to learning. Students can access their course from anywhere they have Internet access. AACC offers its own online courses through canvas and partners with a variety of vendors to offer a wide array of quality courses in a number of areas. Some online vendors require additional action to registering with AACC to access the course content online. Please see the list of online vendors below; click the title of a vendor for further instructions.


Is Online Learning a Good Fit for Me?

Are you a self-motivated individual who enjoys and is capable of independent learning? Online learning is all about time management. In fact, you should plan on allocating as much time to the learning schedule for an online course as you would for a classroom course! You also need to be comfortable with asking questions, communicating with your instructor and interacting with peers if needed. Additionally, the following statements should describe you, if you're considering taking an online course:

  • I understand written instruction.
  • I can create, save and manage files on my computer.
  • I have an email address.
  • I know how to send email attachments.
  • I know how to download and install software from the Internet.
