  • Online Courses for Credit Students

    Online courses for credit students (those seeking a degree/certificate/transfer at Lewis and Clark) provide the same rigor as traditional courses, but their flexibility makes them a convenient alternative. As long as you meet expected due dates, you can work around your schedule and at your own pace, all from the comfort of home.  

    L&C offers two types of online classes: 

    Blackboard-logo
    • Online - Classes that are fully online with no on-campus meetings 
    • Web-blended - Classes where most of the work is completed online with some on-campus requirements.

    All online courses use a course management system called Blackboard. Once logged in, students can access all the information for their online classes, including course syllabi, content, assessments and communication tools. Blackboard courses can, and should, be accessed through the My L&C Portal

    L&C offers online courses in business, the humanities, math and the sciences, among others. Find out if you're eligible below.
