Online Programs

See all online programs

Students attending distance education courses in either a hybrid or fully online program may receive their online, didactic instruction from faculty assigned to various campuses and may be in online classes with students from other campuses. Faculty who teach the online component of courses may be assigned to any PCI campus, but work collaboratively with the faculty and campus management where the student is enrolled. Weekly lesson planning among faculty ensures that all students in hybrid courses receive online didactic instruction that aligns with their on campus, hands-on labs and that each student is adequately supported. A student will be considered enrolled, and upon successful completion of all program requirements, will graduate from the campus where enrollment initially takes place.
