We’ve moved to Blackboard!

Quality Education, Right at Your Fingertips

Northwest Florida State College’s Online Campus combines the affordability and quality of NWF’s traditional classes with the increased accessibility and flexibility of hybrid and online courses to help you earn your degree.

Each year NWF’s Online Campus offers more than 180 online courses, providing over 100 sections to choose from each semester. All NWF classes provide students in an online classroom with the same tools and resources that help students in traditional classrooms succeed.

Online courses, which are offered in full 16-week terms and 8-week “mini-semester” terms, provide students with greater access to courses necessary to complete their program of study on time. NWF currently offers as many as 18 programs available fully online.

Hybrid courses are supplemented with online instruction and resources to allow for reduced seat time, combining the best of NWF’s traditional classrooms with the greater flexibility of the online learning environment.

Out-of-state Distance Education students who have completed the internal institutional grievance process and the applicable state grievance process may appeal non-instructional complaints to the FL-SARA PRDEC Council. For additional information on the complaint process, please visit the FL-SARA Complaint Process page.
