UACCM currently offers online and hybrid courses in many of our degree programs. Some courses include synchronized learning which allows online students to interact with instructor and peers in real time (such as an interactive webinar). The following programs have at least half the course requirements offered as distance education/hybrid:
- Associate of General Studies* – 100% of this degree can be completed through distance education/hybrid courses.
- Associate of Science in Liberal Arts* – 95% of this degree can be completed through distance education/hybrid courses.
- Associate of Arts in General Education* – 95% of this degree can be completed through distance education/hybrid courses.

- Associate of Science in Business – 55% of this degree can be completed through distance education/hybrid courses.
- Associate of Applied Science in Computer Information Systems – 55% of this degree can be completed through distance education/hybrid courses.
*The above programs include science and/or oral communications courses which are currently only offered as hybrid courses. These hybrid courses will require approximately 1/5-1/3 of the course to be completed on campus. Students may visit their advisor for more information pertaining to the amount of time required on campus for your specific degree program.
The A.S. in Liberal Arts, A.S. in Education and A.S. in Business requirements vary based on the four-year university the student will be attending after completion of the UACCM degree. See specific 2+2 plans UACCM has with participating four-year universities for more information. Students may also contact the Student Success Center or their advisor, for personalized assistance.
All online courses will require at least one proctored exam. The exam may be proctored on the UACCM campus, or at an off-site facility. In order to get a proctoring site approved, contact UACCM Testing Services at firstname.lastname@example.org. Students must take care of this within the first two weeks of classes in order to have it approved prior to any proctored work. It is best to do this immediately upon registering for online courses.
Remediation courses are not offered through distance education. Students who plan to take online courses must meet the prerequisites for each class they enroll in. See course descriptions for more information.
