eLearning requires a specific set of learning skills, and may not be for everyone. Before signing
up for distance courses, take the Online Education Readiness Assessment at the
following link: to get a better idea if this kind of college environment is right for
you. All eLearning students must have their own computer and Internet access independent of
GHC campus sites.

Now you can get an associate’s degree in business, general studies or history via
eLearning (Web, DVD and/or hybrid).  If you want to learn whether your associate’s
program will be available via eLearning, just ask the Admissions office.

Here’s What You Can Expect from eLearning

  • You won’t meet as many times as you would in a traditional in-class course.
  • You’ll spend much of your time on your computer, because that is where you’ll find your assignments and readings.
  • You’ll also go online to interact with your classmates and instructors on the coursediscussion board.
  •  You will be the one to be responsible for doing your assignments and staying on track.
  • If you’re in a hybrid class, you’ll see an instructor on a regular basis at a scheduled time.

GHC is constantly adding to the roster of eLearning courses, so if you don’t see yourchosen degree among the course listings, be sure to ask for availability.
