About Distance Education

Distance Learning allows you to take accredited Piedmont Community College courses from home or any location, at your convenience. Many students appreciate the flexible scheduling and convenience of not having to travel to campus on a regular basis. This is ideal for those with demanding work schedules, family responsibilities, and those who cannot travel to campus due to transportation, scheduling conflicts, or physical challenges.

In addition, some students prefer the independence and convenience of Distance Learning courses. Distance Learning courses give students greater flexibility in course scheduling and students find that they have greater control over the learning process and are able to customize their course time and work in a way that best suits their specific schedule.
