Distance Learning with Edison Online


Students enrolled at Edison State College have the ability to earn their Associate of Arts degree entirely online through Edison Online. Classes have been developed in every core requirement area of the degree program. Many upper division classes are now offered online as well.

While Edison Online credit courses are academically equivalent to on-campus courses, they allow students the opportunity to complete their coursework off-campus anytime, anywhere. This gives the student greater flexibility, but can require more self-discipline.
