About Distance Learning at Southwest
Distance Learning from Southwest is a great way to get a college education on your schedule. Classes are delivered online, offering a flexible way to get a degree, certificate, or to take classes to transfer to a four-year college or university.
Once you decide to enroll at Southwest, all online student resources will be located and accessed through MYSouthwest. MYSouthwest is where students access Canvas (the online platform where all classes and course content are housed), student e-mail, library resources, tutoring services, Zoom meeting information, and related student information.
Explore our programs and find a program that fits your needs. We're available if you have questions about a specific program or course. Your course may incorporate streaming media, which contains videos where you will gain information similar to if you were listening to a lecture in a face-to-face classroom. The Canvas course page will also indicate if you are required to contact the Distance Learning office to obtain any supplemental materials.
Contact us if you have any questions about what is expected of you in your distance courses or for more information.
