Online Learning invites you to join us on the path to success from wherever you are!

At Lamar Institute of Technology (LIT), we are committed to making quality education accessible regardless of your location or schedule constraints by extending many of our course and program offerings online. Our online programs and courses provide a high-quality educational experience accesible from the comfort of your home or office, tailored to suit your schedule.

Admissions, curriculum, and graduation criteria mirror those of our on-campus counterparts, ensuring equal standards across the board. High-speed internet access, basic computer proficiency, and the drive to succeed are primary ingredients necessary for successfully completing an online course.

Certain online programs may require a visit to an accredited testing center or participation in a work practicum within your local area. Please consult the program information for specific prerequitites and requirements.

Student fees may be associated with Distance Education courses. Please visit https://www.lit.edu/admissions/tuition-and-fees/fees for current fee schedules.

Students in an online course may be required to show proof of identification through 1) a secure login and pass code for all courses, 2) proctored examinations, and/or 3) other technology and practices identified for a specific course.
