• Online Learning

    LaGuardia’s online and hybrid courses open the doors of higher education for everyone, no matter where or when you choose to study. Two options let you decide between courses completed entirely online or hybrid classes that are a mix of online and traditional, face-to-face classroom instruction.

    Take charge of your future; obtain your degree in the way that’s right for you.

  • Requirements

    To take an online class, you must have completed at least one semester at LaGuardia and achieved a cumulative grade point average (GPA) of 2.0 or better on all college-level work. Then, you’ll be eligible to take one online course. If you maintain a cumulative GPA of 2.0 or better, you can take up to two online courses per semester.

    You also must have a relatively up-to-date computer, operating system and internet browser to use Blackboard, and you must comply with any technical requirements outlined in your class syllabus.

  • Tips for Success

    Most students find hybrid/online classes more challenging than face-to-face classes. If you're committed to trying a hybrid/online class, follow these tips:

    • Manage your time well. You're in charge of the pace of your own learning.
    • Be prepared to do a lot of reading and writing.
    • Make sure you're comfortable with technology.
    • Learn how to access the LaGuardia Library off campus.
    • Take a quiz to see if hybrid/online learning is right for you.
