Do you wonder if online learning is for you? Do you wonder what you need to be a successful online student? Do you wonder how you can get started with your online education and what courses are available to you as an online student?

To support you in continuing your online learning path, we have developed structures such as virtual access to tutoring, counseling, assessment proctoring, equity and accessibility resources, Canvas platform tools, and wellness resources for all students. Additionally, enhanced technology has been made available for all faculty, classified professionals, students, and administrators to support and assist with the successful transition to fully remote learning. Once LMC returns to traditional course delivery, our highly developed infrastructure of remote student services will continue to be valuable and fully accessible to all students, no matter their medium of learning.
