Online Education

Welcome to Distance Learning at Snead State Community College!

Welcome to eLearning at Snead State Community College. Snead State continues to be a leader in the state when it comes to online education.

Snead State is proud to offer a variety of educational opportunities through eLearning. Our courses teach the very same objectives and outcomes as courses offered on campus; the difference is in the delivery. Instead of attending a class where an instructor provides a lecture and leads a classroom discussion, eLearning courses are delivered over the Internet and through video capture. Each course requires approximately 6-7 hours per week during the semester to complete the work. These courses require as much commitment as any traditional on-campus class. They require dedicated, ongoing, and regular participation.

Snead State offers hundreds of online classes. Additionally, students can earn the Associate in Applied Science Degree in Business Management completely online. This degree, which includes ten concentration options, prepares students to enter the workforce or transfer to another institution to pursue a four-year degree.

Other 100% online options include:
  • Accounting Tech (Short Certificate)
  • Child Development (Short Certificate / Certificate / AAS Degree) online.  Most courses include required field experiences that must be done at a child care facility.
  • Office Administration (Short Certificate / AAS) Medical Transcription (Short Certificate)
  • LPN-to-RN Mobility- There are some on-campus meetings and also clinical placements.
Most transfer options are available 100% online, including the most popular Business, Elementary Education and Pre-Nursing. To view this semester’s class offerings, please click here.
