Online and Hybrid Classes

Our Distance Learning program allows you the opportunity to achieve your educational goals through the use of fully online classes and hybrid classes. The fully online environment provides students with the flexibility of taking courses from any place at any time. Hybrid courses will require that students attend a portion of the class in person and a portion online.

Using Canvas, an online learning management system, you will obtain course content, complete assignments and exams, and communicate in a virtual classroom setting. Course material can be accessed on a regular basis and details on how the system will be used in your course will be provided in your instructor’s syllabus. 

Courses may not appear in Canvas until the first day of the semester. Please remember this when you first log in if you do not see the class you enrolled in immediately appear in your list of courses. 

Please note that students living outside of California or Nevada (based on their mailing address and physical presence) are prohibited from taking online classes at Sierra College.
