Lamar State College-Port Arthur offers On-line and Hybrid courses to make the pursuit of degrees and certificates more accessible for students who may find it difficult to attend regular on-campus classes.
Hybrid courses are offered partly online and partly on campus. This option provides increased flexibility to expand learning beyond the traditional lecture classes. Students and instructors meet in the traditional classroom format usually for two hours per week with the remaining coursework delivered electronically.
On-line courses offer students the most convenience and flexibility by providing internet delivery of all course content, exams, assignments, activities, and communication with the instructor.
Academic, technical, and developmental courses are available online. Students should be aware that to succeed in these courses they must be self-motivated, responsible, and very well organized.
