Distance Learning

Your Dreams Matter

Distance Learning courses bring education to you. Our goal at COS is to develop and deliver universally accessible, academically sound, and technologically advanced instruction that supports your success, provides the depth and breadth of a quality post-secondary degree education, responds to community needs, and promotes faculty innovation.

Core Values:

  • Quality: COS provides high quality instruction and instructional services to learners enrolled in distance learning classes.
  • Community: COS promotes adoption of instructional best practices by faculty involved in teaching distance learning classes.
  • Innovation: COS fosters an atmosphere of professional growth and exploration into quality innovative approaches to teaching and learning in distance learning classes.

At College of the Siskiyous, our goal is to help you meet your degree or certificate goals. We offer hundreds of distance learning courses every year in a variety of modalities.

Online and hybrid courses can be taken from any Internet-connected computer, making them a good alternative for those who live at a distance from the campus or cannot be on campus during regular class hours. Some Internet classes are "hybrid" courses, blending online with on-campus work. Please be sure that you can be available for the on-campus portion of this work.

Visit our Student Support for Online Learning page for more information.
