Online Degrees and Certificates
These degrees are designed to assist you in your transfer to a Cal State University
(CSU) and other schools and also require general education requirements (IGETC or
CSU GE). Highlighted courses indicate classes are available online or on campus.
Here’s a list of schoolswhere you can complete your Bachelor degree fully online. SMC's counselors can help
you to decide what school would be a good fit for you, and support you with the transfer
application process. SMC is #1 in transfers, and you can make an appointment to meet
with a counselor through Corsair Connect.
Online Student Support
SMC wants you to be successful, here’s a variety of student services to support you.
Online classes are likely a good fit for you if you have good computer skills, are
organized, self-motivated, and need a flexible learning schedule.
SMC faculty, counselors, and staff are here to support you, and classes are designed
to help you be successful. Online classes are not harder or easier, just different.
Most faculty and students would say they are challenging, but manageable. Most work
will be done on your own time, usually with weekly deadlines.
Classes are hosted in the Canvas learning management system, which is easy to use
and also includes a mobile app. Most online classes are asynchronous, which means
you complete all classwork on your own time within class deadlines.
