Learn by Term & Learn on Demand
BCTC Students may enroll in online classes offered by any of the 16 colleges that comprise the Kentucky Community and Technical College System. *IMPORTANT* In order to receive a BCTC credential, 25% of credits must come from BCTC classes. Taking classes with BCTC faculty provides other benefits as well: students gain access to instructors who also serve as academic advisors and help place students in internships. Books for BCTC online classes are available for purchase in the Cooper Campus BCTC bookstore. Finally, if there are problems with your class, the BCTC Distance Learning Office can work directly with a BCTC instructor.
Locate online BCTC classes using the BCTC Class Schedule Search form. Set the "Format" field to "online".

- LoD courses should be added no later than the 7th day of the term in order for students to use financial aid.
- LoD courses begin on the first Monday of the semester with new course courses starting every week through up until 6 weeks remaining in the semester.
- Like other online classes, LoD courses must be completed by the end of the regular semester term in order to keep with Financial Aid regulations.
