Tue, 30 Mar 2021 06:02:09 EDT


During their most recent meeting (March 18th), Alpena Community College Board members approved supporting the submission of a Distance Delivery Substantive Change Application to the Higher Learning Commission for approval to provide distance education in all associate degrees, programs and certificates.

Officials say, depending on the type of change an institution plans to make - expanding its academic offerings, opening a new location, changing its mission, etc. - it may be required to apply for prior HLC approval or notify HLC of the change.

When prior approval is required, the institution must submit an application describing the change. As enrollment increases in the area for online classes, Alpena Community College wants to obtain approval from the Higher Learning Commission to provide distance learning in all associates degrees, programs, and certificates.

The board approved the submission by unanimous vote.
