Getting Started in Distance Learning Courses

How do I enroll?

Register and pay for your distance learning courses as you would any traditional SCC course – either in person, by mail or through SCC Connection online registration. If you feel that you are not proficient at computer or Internet use, you may wish to take a non-credit personal computer class such as MIC 103-30 (Introduction to PCs) or MIC 122-30 (Mastering the Internet) prior to enrolling in an online class. For more information, contact the Division of Corporate and Community Development at 636-922-8233.

What do I do after I enroll?

  • View the course requirements for online/hybrid courses in SCC Connection or the Distance Learning Course Page.
  • Purchase your textbooks and study guides from the campus Bookstore in person, online or by telephone and have them mailed for an additional charge. Be sure to mention you are in a distance learning course since textbooks sometimes vary from on-campus classes.  
  • Check out the videotapes/CDs from the college library for your teleweb, video or telecourse. See our library hours. (May require student ID.)
