Students today have a full work schedule and/or family obligations that make it difficult
to spend time driving to class to earn a degree. University of Houston-Clear Lake
seeks to eliminate this challenge by offering high quality online courses and degrees
that you can complete from your home or office. Courses are conveniently offered online
as part of 20 degrees and certificate programs.
Online Delivery Format
This format is delivered via the Internet using a course management tool called Blackboard
with all class instruction delivered and course requirements fulfilled online. No
face-to-face instruction and student interaction or face-to-face student group interaction
is required. Courses offered online provide an environment for flexible learning and
teaching while delivering the same high-quality content as in a traditional setting.
* Some online courses require proctored exams. Be sure to check with your instructor
for specific information regarding examinations in your course.
Web Enhanced (Hybrid)
With this format, classroom instruction is delivered and course requirements are fulfilled
via a combination of face-to-face instruction at the UHCL campus and off-campus sites
and online. In a web enhanced class, an instructor can deliver all instruction online
but require students to attend mandatory orientation, class presentations, and in-class
examinations. The number of face-to-face meetings is determined by the instructor
and can be found on the footnotes for the class on the UHCL class schedule. The Web
enhanced format is popular both on the UHCL campus and at the off-campus learning
