Introduction to Distance Learning (ACA-112), a one-credit online minimester course, is an entrance requirement for all eDegree associate's degrees.  Applicants must successfully complete ACA-112 before they are considered eDegree students with priority registration privileges. Students who complete ACA-112 in the summer or first minimester of the fall of 2013 will have the opportunity to build a schedule entirely composed of online classes for the spring of 2014. if they take advantage of priority registration.  For more information about ACA-112, please see our Frequently Asked Questions.

eDegree programs are limited enrollment and first-qualified, first enrolled.  Because of the registration schedule and limited online course offerings, we cannot guarantee that new students who have not completed ACA-112 will be able to build a schedule entirely composed of online classes.  Online course availability follows the degree program schedule in the college catalog.  For more information about GTCC's online programs contact edegree@gtcc.edu.

In programs for which PED-110 is required, eDegree students substitute HEA-110.

Some instructors require proctored exams in Mathematics, Accounting, and Office Systems Technology courses. However, you can make arrangements to complete these at other proctoring locations, not just on campus.  The course syllabus should include information about whether your class requires proctored tests.  Instructors work with students to make sure they can complete the tests at times and places that work with students' schedules. Students who are enrolled in courses that require a proctored exam may incur additional charges.

Students in the Healthcare and Office Administration certificate programs are required to take ACA-112 to receive priority registration for certificate programs unless waived by the department chair.

*Programs noted with * require Microsoft certification exams, which must be taken at a Certiport testing center. You can find this information at www.certiport.com.

Final semesters of Healthcare Management Technology and Medical Office Administration currently require co-op work experience classes that cannot be done online.
