Online. Anytime. Anywhere. More than 21,000 students a year enroll in distance education at MC—are you going to be one of them? Work towards a certificate or associate’s degree. Go fully online, or go blended—partially online and partially on campus. Take classes when and where it’s most convenient for you. Our challenging academics and talented faculty make MC the ideal choice.

We offer four degrees you can earn fully online (Business, Computer Science and Technologies, Criminal Justice, and General Studies), along with a wide variety of online courses from different subjects, such as business law, construction management, homeland security, music, sociology, sonography, and many more.

Why Take Online Classes at MC?

Want a class that is taken entirely on the Internet? Fully online courses are for you. Sign in to “meet” your instructor, access the syllabus and other course materials, participate in discussions, collaborate with other students, turn in assignments, and pos­sibly even take quizzes and exams.

Prefer the convenience of online learning but the personal connection of a classroom? Blended courses may be what you're looking for. They require some regular classroom attendance in addition to online coursework.

Both fully-online and blended courses require the same prereq­uisites and learning objectives as those taught in a traditional format. Distance education students have access to the same types of services as on-campus students, includ­ing counseling and advis­ing, libraries and library databases, and learning centers.
