In conjunction with this program, Pillar works with the Consortium of Online Christian Colleges (COCC) to make online courses available to students, to make up credit deficiencies that they cannot fulfill through a regular classroom experience. A regular schedule of courses offered through the consortium will be published. The LEAD Office will assist students in registering for these courses.
Periodic announcements will be made as to the enrollment dates of the various courses which will be offered online. Students must have access to a computer with an internet connection. The speed of the computer, the speed of the modem, and the quality of the phone line are also significant.
Although on line classes will be asynchronous (all students do not need to be online at the same time), students will have contact with their instructor and classmates through forums and email.
The tuition cost, fee, procedures, and refund policies for online courses are consistent with course offered on the main campus. Details can be obtained by contacting the LEAD office.
