Distance Learning

Many departments on campus offer courses through distance learning. These courses take two forms: Internet distance learning courses and video conference distance learning courses. Students wishing to take Internet distance learning courses must check with their advisor to receive additional infor­mation about access to the courses. Students are required to have a basic understanding of Internet functions (e-mail with attachments, browsers, downloading and uploading files, etc.) to take internet distance learning courses. More information about these courses can be obtained directly from the department.

Distance Learning and Experiential Learning courses are searchable on the schedule of classes.

Course Attributes

General Education courses are assigned an attribute that describes the specific General Education requirement that they meet such as Humanities, Social Science, Natural Science, Freshman Year Experience, etc. Note: Some courses may fulfil more than one General Education requirement. Refer to your plan of study /degree map for the types of course electives that are required for your specific degree.

Hospitality and Tourism Students with teacher

Experiential Learning courses are assigned the EXL attribute. Purdue University Calumet requires two experiential learning components for graduation.  Courses that include a laboratory component will have the LABS attribute.  Courses can have more than one type of attribute.


To search for courses by attribute use the online search tool available in the Course Descriptions area of the Academic Catalog and follow the directions for narrowing your search.  This will allow you to search for course availability by semester.
