“I absolutely love every minute of online classes. Now that I travel 2-3 days a week for work I definitely couldn’t attend class on campus. Taking online classes gives me so much flexibility for times to work on homework.”
~ Tara West, full-time clinical research associate, LLCC online student
Why LLCC Online?
LLCC has a strong history of offering quality online education and because of this the college has been specifically accredited for offering online courses and approved for a variety of online degrees and certificates by the Higher Learning Commission, LLCC’s accrediting body. The complete list of these degrees and certificates can be found online at the Online Degrees & Certificates page.
New online courses are added regularly to continue to support and grow the LLCC online program and to provide our students with even more online learning opportunities. Additionally, online courses at LLCC transfer to other colleges and universities just as our traditional LLCC courses.
Another significant advantage of taking online courses from LLCC is the local connection to you and your community. LLCC online students receive all of the benefits and flexibility of attending college online, but also receive the significant advantages of learning from their local community college with all the support services provided to all LLCC students.
At LLCC online students have many options for degree or certificate completion. While many of our students choose to complete their education entirely online, many more create customized schedules utilizing a mixture of both online and face-to-face courses. These face-to-face courses can be taken on our main campus in Springfield or at one of our Outreach Centers. By taking a blend of online courses and traditional face-to-face courses, many students are able to complete their educational goals in a manner that best suits their busy lives.
Online courses at LLCC provide students with a flexible and dynamic learning environment that is convenient to them, while maintaining the high quality of instruction that LLCC is known for. Our own faculty members teach LLCC online courses. They are local and accessible; they are a part of the LLCC college community and are here for you.
“The nice thing about the online environment is that everyone sits in the front row and can have interaction with their instructor, the online demographic tends to have more diverse experience, and students can share their stories, engage each other, and learn not only from me but from each other, and that’s great because they are interesting people who I would never get a chance to meet in a face-to-face classroom.”
