Union County College currently offers two types of Distance Education formats:

Online Courses  are delivered totally at a distance using a computer with Internet access. No class meetings, however, some courses may require a proctored exam.

Blended Learning Courses  are a combination of classroom meetings and online instruction. There are three semester-long Blended Learning class meeting options: 14, 7, or 4 sessions. A final exam is scheduled during the college's exam week.
