Prospective Students

Online Courses

For students who are unable to attending traditional, classroom-based courses, the College offers several online courses each semester. Because these courses are taught entirely on the Web, without set meeting times, students must be motivated and self-disciplined to be successful. Access to a computer with Internet access also is required. Students enrolling in an online or hybrid course for the first time must complete an introductory module as part of the registration process for the course. For more information, call 856.351.2635.


Do you have what it takes?

As a student enrolled in an online course at Salem Community College, your instructors will expect you to be ready, eager to participate, and learn by interacting with them and your class mates. Online education is flexible, however, it doesn't require the same effort that is expected in a traditional class. You'll be able to fit classes into your schedule, instead of trying to work your schedule around school. Participation is a huge requirement for each course set by SCC and your instructor.

Online students that possess the following qualities typically do very well in their courses:

  • Actively involved in the course(s) you take.
  • Highly motivated.
  • Independent.
  • Organized.
  • Disciplined.
  • Industrious.
  • Creative.
  • Flexible.


You don't need to be a computer expert, but you will need regular and dependable access to a computer with Internet access, supported software and applicable plug-ins. Your instructor will provide more detailed information regarding technical requirements for the course.
