Admission Requirements

Web Page Authoring is an online program, requiring students to attend campus only to take proctored exams. Students must have a computer and Internet access. Students are expected to have a basic familiarity with computers and the Web, and be capable of configuring their computers for online courses. Visit www.nscc.edu/academics/online-learning/ for additional information about hardware and software standards and to determine whether online learning is right for you.

Online courses offer an asynchronous learning environment; students participate in class activities such as bulletin board discussions at different times of day and different days of the week. Weekly participation is required—the courses are not “self-paced.”

A few of the courses may require the student to own specific applications, such as Photoshop™ or Dreamweaver™. Some of the courses are also offered onsite (in a classroom).
