BAAS Distance Students
More than half of Bachelor of Applied Arts & Sciences students register for at least one course in a distance education format every semester. Many of our students complete their degrees completely online or at night.
Lamar University’s Center for Distance Education offers classes in the following formats:
Online classes that use Blackboard as a platform
(Spring and Fall - 16 weeks; Summer - 5 or 10 weeks; Mini semesters - 3 weeks)
Night classes at Westbrook High School and Lumberton High School starting at 6pm on Mondays through Thursdays
BAAS advisement can also be completed at a distance. Students can receive information regarding course selection, registration, completing the BAAS degree and even apply for graduation through phone and email advisement.
