Shared Services Distance Learning

Expand your learning horizon! Distance Learning offers courses through Shared Services Distance Learning from NOVA and other colleges in the VCCS.

Are you interested in Arabic, Russian, Astronomy, Meteorology, Ethics in Management, International Business, Help Desk Support, Linear Algebra, and Discrete Mathematics? Thanks to the Shared Services Distance Learning agreement with Northern Virginia Community College, we offer courses that are not at Southwest. If there is a course that you want to take, but it is not listed in the schedule, you can contact our student liaison and see if that course can be offered from another campus through Shared Services Distance Learning.

SWCC offers shared distance learning courses through Northern Virginia Community College’s Extended Learning Institute (ELI).

  • Register and pay through MySouthwest, and receive course credit from SWCC on your transcript.
  • Access the courses through MySouthwest Canvas delivery system along with your other classes.
  •  NVCC provides online tutoring ( Smarthinking ), career counseling, student success coaches, 24/7 help desk and virtual student social activities (ELI Student Services link) for enrolled students
  •  Connect with YOUR student liaison at SWCC to gain additional support to ensure success.

See the full class schedule for more information.
Many of these classes have variable start/end dates. Check the schedule notes for exact dates.
