Distance Learning

Every student within the EWC service area has the opportunity to take college credit courses and earn a degree or certificate through distance education. EWC is approved by The Higher Learning Commission to offer the following complete degree or certificate programs via distance.

  • Interdisciplinary Studies AA degree and AS degree
  • Criminal Justice AA degree
  • Business Administration AAS degree
  • Child Development Certificate
  • Corrections Certificate
  • Early Childhood Education AA degree
  • Elementary Education AA degree

Classes are offered via Internet, using both synchronous and asynchronous interaction. A three year rotation schedule of distance classes ensures that all program requirements are offered for the above degrees. Eastern Wyoming College offers courses in many core areas including general education, business, computer applications, criminal justice, education, social sciences, and human development.

Support services available to help students include technology support, student advising, library, bookstore, counseling, financial aid, tutoring, online registration, and online grade reports.

Students interested in taking distance classes should consider:

  • How comfortable are you with using technology such as computers, e-mail, and the Internet?
  • Are you a self-directed, self-motivated, and self-disciplined student? It is important to stick to a schedule with distance courses.
  • Are you comfortable with forms of interaction such as chat rooms, text messaging, e-mail, or telephone calls?
  • Do you have the time commitment to devote to a distance course? Distance courses require as much or more of your time than traditional classes.
  • Are you willing to be an active participant and an advocate for your own education? Then distance learning may be for you!

For questions, please call the Instructional Technology Office at either (307) 534.2912 or 877.392.4678 (877.EWC.INST) menu item 3 or check the web at ewc.wy.edu/distance.
