Distance Education

You can access quality instruction anytime, anywhere with distance education from Oconee Fall Line Technical College.

Distance education gives you the flexibility to take classes in the environment that works best for you... home, office, internet café or even during travel – business or pleasure. Online classes contain the same high-quality class content as classes taken in the traditional classroom setting. However, taking your classes online provides you the opportunity to work, play, and tend to your busy schedule of life.

On-Campus OR Proctored Test Requirements

OFTC online courses require at least one proctored event. Students are responsible for scheduling a time to complete a supervised test at an approved testing center and/or with an approved proctor for certain graded activities. It is a good idea to make arrangements for a proctor as soon as the date of the proctored activity is known. OFTC online students may register for proctoring through the OFTC website. Students must register at least 48 hours in advance of their desired appointment time; failure to allow a 48-hour notification may result in the student receiving an incomplete grade or a failing grade for the exam and/or course. Students must present a photo ID at each appointment. Students in online classes who do not complete the proctored event will receive an “F” for the course.
