Distance learning is a way of learning remotely without being in regular face-to-face contact with a teacher in the classroom. Florida Gateway College offers many distance learning course sections to meet the needs of our students.

What must I have for an online course?

You must have a computer, an internet service provider, and course-related software (if required) such as Microsoft Word or Microsoft Office Professional. Check with your instructor for any special hardware or software that might be needed. Faculty members determine whether their online class will require proctored testing. The college offers free proctored testing. Students who opt to take proctored exams outside of the college’s proctored testing sites may incur additional costs.
