Distance Learning

Distance Learning at Western Wyoming Community College meets the needs of students within our 5-county area and beyond. The Distance Learning Department works with campus and the WWCC Outreach sites to provide credit courses for all students. To find your closest outreach site, go to Outreach Centers. The distance courses consist of on-site courses in the outreach and online.

Outreach On-site Courses: Qualified instructors within individual communities teach college credit courses. The instructors follow the same syllabus as teachers on the Rock Springs campus. These courses are traditional, live classes in your community.

Online Courses : Online courses are completed over the Internet. Although students can work on the course anytime, 24 hours a day, they will have assignments due on specified dates . Online courses have specified starting and ending dates coinciding with the on-campus semester or block courses. Some online courses have synchronous lab components.

Academic Policies are the same for traditional classroom and online courses. Through a variety of delivery methods, students enrolled in distance education courses have access to student services, library, tutoring, and counseling opportunities similar to students on campus.
