eLearning/Online Learning

eLearning at Gulf Coast State College offers a combination of online and blended classes that give you the freedom to work around job and family obligations. When combined with traditional classes, online and blended classes can help you finish your degree or certificate faster so you can begin your career!

What should you expect? Taking online classes requires the ability to work independently, manage your time and prioritize your assignments. You will need a computer and regular access to the Internet. Other hardware and software requirements vary based on the class you are taking. Some classes may have certain technical requirements such as a specific software program. 

Some classes are blended and provide the flexibility to complete the majority of the coursework online, but they also include a classroom component to give you face-to-face instruction and the ability to interact with fellow students.
