Online Learning

Huntington Junior College offers a variety of classes through online learning. The Administrative Technology, Business Management, Medical Coding, and Substance Abuse Counseling Assistant Associate Degrees can be completed online.

The online classes use a web-based classroom where you can post assignments, participate in student discussions, and take exams.

The classes have weekly assignments with due dates and times. However, you do not have to be logged on at any specific time during the week as long as you ensure your work is submitted by each Sunday at 11:59 pm.

The U.S. Department of Education has published rules regarding institutions participating in Title IV funding that offer distance learning in multiple states. Huntington Junior College is a State Authorization Reciprocity Agreement (SARA) member. The National Council for State Authorization Reciprocity was established to develop and implement an effective and efficient reciprocal state-level authorization process for postsecondary distance education. Its mission is to provide broad access to postsecondary education opportunities to students across the country, to increase the quality and value of higher learning credentials earned via distance education, and to assure students are well served in a rapidly changing education landscape.

The State Authorization Reciprocity Agreement is an agreement among member states, districts, and territories establishing comparable national standards for the interstate offering of postsecondary distance education courses and programs. It is intended to make it easier for students to take online courses offered by postsecondary institutions based in another state.

Huntington Junior College agrees to work with the West Virginia Higher Education Policy Commission to resolve any complaints arising from its students in SARA states and to abide by the decisions of that entity regarding the resolution of such complaints. Students can appeal SARA complaint decisions with the West Virginia Higher Education Policy Commission.
