Lecture, or face-to-face, classes are one way to achieve your educational goals, and are preferred by some students. But here are some things to consider:


  • Are you close to a college campus?
  • Do you have time to go to class at least two days a week?
  • Can you arrange classes around your work schedule?
  • Who will take care of your kids?
  • Will transportation and related costs be a hardship?

Central Texas College Distance Learning offers an alternative to lecture classes - and you can take online classes and face-to-face classes at the same time. Regardless of your situation, you will have access to all student and support services - online or on campus.
