Dual Credit & eLearning at Weatherford College offers students a variety of options for participating in college courses. These include:
- Dual Credit Classes
- eLearning Classes
- Hybrid Classes
- Virtual College of Texas Courses (VCT)
- Off-Campus Location Classes
Dual Credit Classes
Dual Credit classes are college classes taken for both college and high school credit. These classes are taught by credentialed college instructors and may be offered at high school campuses, online, or on WC campuses. To enroll in dual credit classes, students must be a high school student and must follow the steps on the Early Admissions and Dual Credit page.
eLearning Classes are offered via the internet. Courses are developed and taught in such
a manner as to insure they are of the same quality and instructional rigor as the face-to-face counterpart. eLearning classes offer a student flexibility in scheduling and provide learning opportunities where transportation, work schedules, family lifestyles, and other barriers might prevent class participation on the campus.
It is important for the online student to understand that this instructional format is just as demanding, if not more so, than a face-to-face classroom.
Students participating in eLearning classes are required to attend at least two proctored activities
or assessments on the college campus. Additional proctor locations may be approved by the classroom instructor. The Online Orientation Packet provides more information about online courses. Also visit the Online Classroom website.
Hybrid Classes combine the best of two instructional methods by allowing students and instructors to meet face-to-face on a regular basis, but providing the option of having a large portion of the coursework and assignments available and completed in an online classroom.
Virtual College of Texas (VCT)
This online resource allows Weatherford College to purchase online classes from other community colleges. If a student needs an online class not offered by WC, we have the opportunity to search other community college offerings to purchase space in their online classes. The student partici-
pating in the Virtual College of Texas enrolls in the course through Weatherford College and receives transcripted credit from Weatherford College. However, the instruction for the course is provided by an instructor at another Texas community college.
Off-Campus Location Classes
Each semester Weatherford College offers a selection of courses at locations other that the main campus and the education centers. These locations are typically area high schools and are usually evening offerings. Please see the most current Schedule of Classes for a complete list of off-
campus locations and course offerings.
