Enrolling more than 13,600 students in campus and online degree programs, the college is proud to support and cultivate diversity within the student body. Bunker Hill is internationally recognized for the development of alternative and individualized methods of higher education and leads the way in distance-learning technology and computer-based methodology. Part of Bunker Hill’s initiative to provide alternative higher education opportunities includes creating 10 fully-online associate degree programs that any student with a computer and Internet access has the opportunity to earn.
Bunker Hill Community College’s online-degree programs give busy working adults all the tools necessary to succeed at pursuing a higher degree of education. Through Moodle, the online learning platform, students can study course materials, complete and submit assignments, communicate with classmates and instructors, and take tests. Bunker Hill Community College provides student services to distance learners as well. Advising, tutoring, and career exploration are just a few of the services students have access to online. Courses are delivered in four different formats: web courses, hybrid courses, streaming media courses, and virtual classes.
