Colleges and universities are offering more online programs every year. Online courses offer the convenience that face-to-face instruction cannot. However, face-to-face instruction provides much needed contact with the instructor, and students have a better chance of successfully completing these classes when compared to online courses.
Which is better? Why not take HCC’s face-to-face instructional courses while enrolled in an online program? The South Dakota Board of Regents (SDBOR) offer several online programs. A sampling of programs is listed below. Go to the SDBOR website for a complete list of current and future programs.. Take our classes at HCC while completing your online degree.
