Why pursue an online degree?

FLCC offers a wide range of programs online, allowing you to conveniently explore your academic interests and discover a fulfilling career path. All of FLCC's online learning opportunities are fully accredited and offer an engaging educational experience that will help you obtain the knowledge and skills you need to achieve your goals.

Anytime, anywhere learning

Online classes are easy to access and fit into your personal schedule, helping you overcome job, time, and geographic location obstacles.

Independence and flexibility

Students that are successful online learners possess motivation, discipline, and time management skills and are comfortable using a computer and the internet. Many students find that online learning meets their learning style better than in-person courses.

Dedicated, experienced instructors

Faculty that teach our online courses often also teach on-campus courses. They are highly experienced in their field of study, understand the multifaceted needs of students, and care deeply about their success.

A proven solution

FLCC has been selected as one of the premier online learning programs in New York State and is constantly developing new online degree programs to stay at the forefront of in-demand academic opportunities. As an OPEN SUNY Plus campus, our courses and degree programs have gone through a rigorous process to ensure the highest quality education. 

Online associate degree and certificate programs

Hybrid programs available at least 50% online

Hybrid courses offer the best of both worlds by combining in-person classroom instruction with online learning activities. In a typical hybrid course, students will attend class on-campus for a limited amount of time during the semester and then complete additional coursework online through the campus course management system. Depending on the course, students may meet once a week or just a few times throughout each semester. Learn more about Hybrid Courses.

Hybrid options include:

HyFlex Learning

Through FLCC's HyFlex learning model, the choice of how, when, and where you access your course is yours. Students can choose to attend class in-person, watch online in real-time, or watch the recorded lecture on their own time. HyFlex learning provides the convenience and flexibility of online study, with the option to attend class in-person if you choose. Learn more about HyFlex learning.
