Distance Learning Option
In August 2007, the Higher Learning Commission extended Stark State College's accreditation to include the offering of online degrees. In their approval of the online degree program, the Accreditation Panel of the Higher Learning Commission stated:
“The College has provided evidence of a well-structured and supported robust system to develop, deliver, assess and support quality distance education offerings. The College has pioneered a number of best practices components while continuing to set new goals for systemic improvement.”
Stark State now offers the Information Reporting Technology program entirely through distance learning. It affords students the opportunity to complete a college education via distance education from home and at their convenience and it affords students the opportunity to learn with flexibility of time and place while maintaining access to faculty and other College services. E-Learning is a unique alternative to traditional on-campus courses. Stark State College offers nationally accredited online degrees, certificates and more than 130 online courses.
