Mission of the Distance Learning Program at CCRI

multitasking momThe mission of the Distance Learning Program at the Community College of Rhode Island is to extend and maximize the college’s mission of providing affordable open access to higher education by providing the college’s diverse student population with more flexible learning venues. The Distance Learning Program offers students more flexibility in planning a course load, permitting them the option of pursuing an education regardless of time or location. The Distance Learning Program provides educational opportunities to persons with job responsibilities, child-care issues, or transportation issues that interfere with their ability to pursue their education through traditional on-campus classes.
