Online and Hybrid Course Information

Distance Education at Compton College offers students a convenient way to take classes. A variety of online courses are available. Our online courses are fully accredited and offer the same high quality of instruction and rigor as traditional classes. The registration process, course content, course credit, and cost per unit are the same as equivalent courses held on campus. Anyone eligible to take courses on campus may enroll in Distance Education courses. Many of our online courses require an orientation meeting on campus for the first meeting. Students should contact the instructor or click on the links below for specific course orientation information. Students should check your college email accounts in MyCompton for registration appointment date and time. You will no longer get this information in the mail!
