Distance Education

West Chester University offers flexible, convenient distance education programs that are accessible outside the traditional classroom. Our site provides resources for both students and faculty interested in distance education.

Are you a morning person or a night owl? You choose! Courses online allow you to complete your classes at your convenience, without sacrificing quality or valuable interaction with your instructor and peers. As long as you have an internet connection, you can attend class anytime or anywhere.
