Whether you are a full-time student athlete on the road, a busy working adult, or a parent working within the home, online learning offers a flexible and convenient way to expand your education. Many students enjoy the freedom of scheduling and independence they experience in online courses.

Online courses at Greenville College are designed with student engagement at the core. Online students are challenged with a variety of learning experiences both independently and cooperatively within the course. The amount of interaction varies by subject, but a well-managed study plan will help the online learner stay focused, on task, and involved. 

Like students enrolled in classroom-based courses, students enrolled in online courses should plan to devote approximately three hours of work per week per credit hour enrolled to get the most out of their learning experience.
