Frequently Asked Questions about Online Classes

Are online classes right for me?

The State of California’s Online Education Initiative has developed tutorials and tools to help increase your chances of success in any online course. The tutorials are interactive, helpful and easily accessible. Topics range from computer and internet requirements to time management.

Can online classes help me complete general education and degree requirements?

We offer 6o+ online and partially online courses. This table can help you identify which of these classes fit into your education plans.

What is the difference between a fully and partially online class?

Fully online classes meet 100% online, including orientation.

Partially online classes meet in person occasionally, but far less often than traditional classroom courses. There tend to be one to seven mandatory meetings per semester, depending on the class. The times and dates of these meetings can be found in the course listings in the class schedule.

How can I sign up for online classes?

Current students can register for online and partially online courses via the Insite Portal. Just click “Fully Online” or “Partially Online” under course type after selecting a term in the course schedule search menu.

If you’re a new student, speak with a counselor about which classes might be right for you.

I signed up for an online or partially online class. What do I do now?

If you enroll in a fully online class, you will receive a welcome letter at your college email address one week prior to the start of class. It will tell you what you need to know and how to get started. Be sure to watch for this email.

Canvas, the learning management system used to access online and partially online classes, will become available to you on the first official day of your course.  You should sign in to it here. You can find help and directions for using Canvas here. Or, for 24/7 phone support, call 877-930-1126.
