Distance Learning

Alpena Community College offers selected courses online for students who find it difficult to attend class on campus. The online course delivery format is flexible in time and place by delivering instruction via the Internet and the student's computer.

Courses must be completed within the normal 16-week semester (Fall and Spring) or specified summer term.
