About Online/Hybrid Courses

TCTC's Distance Learning Program offers you the chance to work toward your educational goals, even if your family and work schedule keep you from coming to classes on campus. Our online classes allow you to do course work when and where it's convenient for you, yet they still provide the same high quality instruction as our on-campus classes and include lots of interaction with instructors and classmates.
