Office of Distance Education and Off Campus Programs Main Content
You can get here from anywhere. And from here you can go as far as you want to go. It’s an SIU universe, and access to it is expanding. The Office of Distance Education and Off Campus Programs is ready to knock down barriers of time and space to give you access to the brains of a nationally ranked research University.
Timing is everything. Online courses put the schedule in your hands. More alert at 1 a.m. than 1 p.m.? No problem. Not a morning person? So don’t be. Online courses let you decide when to access lectures and course materials or when to take tests. But, you’ll still have some of the structure of a classroom, with a syllabus, deadlines, and discussion forums.
You like the classroom experience, but can’t make it to Carbondale? Off campus options bring the campus closer to you – as near as your area community college. You’ll have the quintessential experience of being in a classroom with an SIU teacher, but you’ll be closer to home. It’s almost like we make house calls.
