Welcome to Distance Learning at Wilson Community College. We offer a variety of online courses, degrees, and certificate programs that will provide you with the flexibility to pursue an education or enhance your skills at your convenience.
WCC offers several degree and certificate programs that can be completed 100% online. Visit the Online Programs page for more information.
Students taking online and hybrid courses must complete an Enrollment Verification Activity by the 10% date (also known as the census date) in each online and hybrid course to be fully enrolled in the course. Students who DO NOT complete the enrollment activity by the 10% date will be marked as NEVER ATTEND and will be WITHDRAWN from the course. No Exceptions. No Refunds.
Online courses have an NT designation and are offered completely online through Moodle, the College’s Learning Management System (LMS). An online course is a college credit course in which all of the learning activities are completed online. Students must maintain academic progression through the course and must have access to a computer and the Internet to complete course assignments and activities. Online courses have the same standards, required competencies, and credit hours as traditional face-to-face courses.
Hybrid courses have an HY designation and are a blend of traditional face-to-face and online learning. A hybrid course is a college credit course in which a portion of the learning activities are completed online. Contact hours, traditionally spent in the classroom or lab, are reduced. Students must attend the scheduled face-to-face meeting times and must have access to a computer and the Internet to complete the online portion. Hybrid courses have the same standards, required competencies, and credit hours as traditional face-to-face or totally online courses. The instructor for each course will set the requirement for online meetings and class meetings.
Non-credit online courses are available through the Continuing Education department to allow students to enhance their skills in various specialty areas. Visit the Ed2Go – Continuing Education page for more information.
Out of state students should contact the college before registering for online courses in order to verify that Wilson Community College is authorized to deliver distance learning courses in the student’s state of residence. Visit the State Authorization page for more information.
