Turn your home into your classroom
We've created several ways for you to conveniently grab some of your basic classes - from a distance. You can complete courses online, or you can even take courses that are part on campus and part online. Just like our traditional college classes, every distance learning course offers full credit, transferability, and it has tests, assignments and an instructor that can help you.For specific course and registration information, see the Schedule of Classes or call a counselor at the nearest campus. For more information, contact the call center at 281-998-6150 and ask for the Distance Learning Office or email us.
