Corning Community College is committed to offering access to all students. By providing Internet courses, we are able to reach out to traditional students as well as those students who might otherwise be unable to continue their education due to time and distance constraints or job and family commitments.
The following degree programs are now offered completely online:
Internet course - the entire course is offered online.
Internet & Lecture Instruction course - the course has some online instruction, with one or more in-class meetings (also known as a "hybrid" or "blended" course).
Computer based instruction - the course is offered via computer, in a classroom setting.
Contact the instructor ahead of time for clarification on any required in-person meeting times.
Find Internet Courses using the Class Schedule
- Click on "Class Schedule."
- Select the desired term and press the "Submit" button.
- At the search screen, in the "Schedule Type" box, select the schedule types that begin with the word "Internet" (select multiple entries by holding down the Ctrl key while you select each entry). Click on the "Class Search" button. This search will return all classes that have a significant Internet requirement.
- Note that some instructors require an in-person meeting at the beginning of the semester, or other in-person meeting times throughout the semester. Verify any special requirements for the course with the instructor or associate dean of the division.

Instructors may also post assignments, hold discussion forums, give tests, and have course blogs or wikis within Blackboard.
