Online Learning

The path to making a dream real is as unique as the dreamer—that’s you. And if an on-campus program simply isn’t going to fit into your life, there is another path to earning your degree and living your dream: Clayton State Online.

As an online student, you can earn your degree during the hours that work best for your busy life, and you can do it from anywhere with a Wi-Fi connection: your comfy chair at home, your favorite coffee shop, a quiet nook at the library. No matter where you settle in for class, you’ll take part in an engaging online learning environment.

An online degree with Clayton State is part of a full curriculum that meets all the requirements for attainment of a bachelor’s or master’s degree. And that means you’ll graduate with the credentials and skills you need to make that unique dream a beautiful reality.

Help When You Need It

Whether on campus or at home, every Clayton State student is part of our family, and we want to see you make your dream real. That’s why online students have access to the same support services as our on-campus students. From writing assistance to tutoring to advising, expert help and guidance are right at your fingertips.

Center for Advising and Retention

Once you enroll in your program as an online student, you’ll be assigned an advisor who will help you register for classes. They’re experts at navigating program-completion requirements and can help keep you on track as you work toward graduation.

Visit the Center for Advising & Retention to learn more.

Center for Academic Success

From tutoring to workshops to academic coaching, you’ll find friendly help at the Center for Academic Success. After hours, online students can get tutoring help through, via Clayton State’s online learning system.
