Distance Education at Ventura College

Ventura College offers convenient access to higher education and learning opportunities via Distance Education. Distance Education Students can take online courses and / or partially online courses. Distance education students are familiar with using technology on a daily basis, own their own computer or tablet, have consistently strong internet connection from home or study place, manage their free time well, and meet deadlines and project goals consistently. Distance Education students are at times very independent. Please research Distance Education carefully before signing up for a course.
