Online Learning

  • Welcome

    Welcome to Online Learning at Southeast Community College! How about earning some credits from the comfort of your own home? SCC offers high-quality courses, as well as a variety of services available on campus, including admissions, advising, tutoring, bookstore services and access to the Library Resource Center. Distance education serves students who need ways to access quality education at times, places and formats that meet their needs. Distance learning courses use the same curriculum and meet the same standards as those offered face-to-face on SCC’s three campuses. Several state-of-the-art teaching technologies are used in the delivery of the distance learning courses. But we realize that online learning isn’t for everyone. That’s why we encourage you to take the Readiness Index for Learning Online. It’s FREE, and you’ll have a better idea whether you’re ready to take online classes.

    Attend a Course Via Robot Technology

    Robots are an innovative tool for bringing students from other locations into the classroom. It creates a new level of interaction for the distance learning student. Robots enable remote students to join the classroom in real time, interact with other students one-on-one, and participate in group discussion. The robot saves students time and money by providing access from any computer. Students can now be present in SCC classes, no matter where they live. Ready to get rolling? Email robots@southeast.edu.

    Am I eligible to use the robot to attend a course or meeting on campus?

    • Do you live in a rural area, either within or outside of the SCC service area?
    • Do you drive a long distance to attend classes on one of the campuses?
    • Do you drive a long distance to attend meetings on one of the campuses?
    • Do you have personal issues that sometimes force you to miss class, such as:
      • A sick child?
      • Childcare issues?
      • A personal illness?

    Robots were provided to SCC through a USDA/RUS Distance Learning and Telemedicine Grant.

    Complaint/Grievance Process for Students at a Distance

    Southeast Community College is committed to resolving student grievances, complaints and concerns in an expeditious, fair and amicable manner. The purpose of the student grievance procedure is to secure, at the lowest level possible, equitable and timely solutions to problems that may arise. A Student attending Southeast Community College at a distance who has a concern, complaint or a need to resolve an issue or grievance should contact Bruce Exstrom, Ph.D. Dean of Virtual Learning and Instructional Development, 402-323-3389, bexstrom@southeast.edu.

    The College’s Student Grievance Procedure can be found in the College Catalog and SCC Student Handbook (available on The Hub to current students). Southeast Community College is accredited by the Higher Learning Commission of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools.

    ADA Grievances

    If a student believes that an accommodation(s) is ineffective or that they have been denied equal access to appropriate accommodations, modifications, auxiliary aids, or effective communication, and efforts to resolve the issues are unsuccessful, a student may file a grievance. Students are encouraged to seek resolution of the grievance through the informal process before filing a formal grievance. However, students may use the College’s formal grievance procedure to appeal decisions regarding student accommodations, and may do so without first going through the College’s informal grievance process.
