Online Programs at UNCG

If you’re a traditional student but interested in taking an online class, you can search the online course catalog and look for courses designated as WEB in the “Course Type” field. If you are a true distance learning student you should register for the D section of the course (for example, BIO-105-01D). If you are a traditional student just taking a few online classes, you will likely register for the regular section (not the D section).
