Norm panning for goldDistance Education is an operation of Credit Programs, a unit of UNC Charlotte’s Extended Academic Programs (ExAP).  Credit Programs is responsible for the coordination, marketing and management of Summer School and for providing academic departments with resources to assist in the development, marketing, coordination and delivery of online and off-campus site-based Distance Education Programs.  Other key unit responsibilities include the assessment of distance education programs and providing distance education students with valuable student services that will enable them to complete their programs while maintaining career and family obligations. 

Among our Distance Education goals is to identify the needs of underserved locations and non-traditional students that may be addressed through distance education programs.  This site features resources to help Department Chairs and Faculty develop and deliver programs and individual courses to serve these populations and extend your College’s academic scope beyond the UNC Charlotte campus.
