Online Learning

Online learning is a great option for a growing number of students, and learning online doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice quality for convenience while you earn your degree. College of the Redwoods is proud to offer access to education for those who need flexibility in attending classes. All of our online courses are fully accredited in the same way our traditional, face-to-face courses are. They have the same student learning objectives and require you to demonstrate the same competencies as our traditional courses.

You can access your College of the Redwoods online course using any Internet connection, anytime, anywhere. Choose the time and place that works for you. Each week, participate in class discussions, post your assignments, and review faculty and peer feedback. Much of your course work can be done offline, too.

Whether you hope to take most of your degree program online, or only a few courses, you want to be sure to speak with an advisor about your plans.
