Mountwest Community and Technical College has been approved to participate in the National Council for State Authorization Reciprocity Agreements.
Mountwest offers more than 100 online courses every semester in a wide variety of subjects. These online courses allow Mountwest students an affordable and convenient way to take courses at our college.
At Mountwest, online courses are asynchronous and offered completely electronically with no face-to-face meetings. This means that all course activity occurs in an online environment.
Another alternative to completely online courses are hybrid courses, which have at least one face-to-face meeting with the entire class in a classroom setting. The majority of the course material and assignments, however, are accomplished electronically.
If you are looking for flexibility in your schedule, then online courses may be right for you.
Consider exploring an online learning course if:
SARA is an agreement among member states, districts and territories that establishes comparable national standards for interstate offering postsecondary distance education. For more information please visit the student section of nc-sara.org.

As of August 3, 2020 at Mountwest, we are running Blackboard Learn 9.1 Q2 2019. It is highly recommend that you use Mozilla Firefox or Google Chrome as your browser when using Blackboard. You can download Firefox or Chrome for free.
Because browsers update regularly it is best to run the Blackboard browser checker to test your browser and your operating system.
