Distance Learning

Very convenient, but...

Wilson Community College students can integrate online courses into their program of study. Some programs offer their entire degree online; others provide online courses but require in-person course work as well. Check your program’s homepage for more information about specific degree requirements.

Why Online?

Online courses offer the busy student several advantages.


Online students don’t commute to a physical classroom. Instead, they work inside a course management system to complete assignments and interact with instructors and classmates. There are due dates for course work, but students can login to the course management system at their convenience.

Excellent Instructors

All our courses are taught by highly-qualified instructors, known for their academic achievements and the practice of their disciplines. Online courses allow the College to expand our faculty pool beyond the Wilson area, offering students the chance to work with excellent instructors from a much wider area.

High levels of interaction

Online students communicate with their instructors and classmates through discussion boards, group assignments, and the occasional live online event. Students often say the online environment allows them to learn as much from their classmates as they do from their instructors and assignments.
