Distance learning includes courses in which all or part of the course is offered “at a distance”. Courses could be online (web-based) courses or off-campus at selected locations.

Online courses require Internet access and email and the student can attend the class at anytime from anywhere. Some online courses, however, may require visits to campus for labs or exams. While the student does not have to attend a traditional classroom, assignments and other course deadlines apply.

Lamar Institute of Technology also provides courses at off-campus sites. Currently, credit courses are offered at the Frank Robinson Center in Silsbee, Silsbee Middle School, Gist Correction Facility and the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Department.
