Training & Help

Students at Skagit Valley Colleges (SVC) elect to take online (eLearning) courses because of a variety of reasons including flexibility in scheduling, learning preferences, and cost-effectiveness. The eLearning courses at SVC are academically rigorous and equivalent to traditional face-to-face courses. They are the same in terms of credits, learning objectives, competencies, content, and transferability. Also, the same policies concerning admission requirements are the same.
