The Division of Distance Education coordinates academic credit classes at off-campus centers, at all campuses during evening hours. Distance Education, in conjunction with academic divisions, also builds, schedules, and tracks cohort programs such as College Express and Learning Strategies Express. The Division of Distance Education coordinates with high schools in our area of service to offer high school juniors and seniors an opportunity to take college courses through dual enrollment. All classes are consistent with the college's overall mission to provide affordable, quality higher education opportunities for residents of Upper East Tennessee. Distance Education also houses Instructional Design that assists faculty with course development and provides faculty training needed for course delivery utilizing technology. The Division of Distance Education strives to offer both accessible and flexible education within and beyond the traditional classroom. The Division supports classes utilizing varying forms of delivery, and strives to provide lifelong learning to individuals seeking professional growth or personal enrichment in a society coping with rapidly changing lifestyles.

Admission requirements for evening and distance education students are identical with requirements for students in the regular daytime program. The quality of instruction governing credit course offered during the evening on campus and at off-campus locations is equivalent in all academic considerations to day courses.

Effective June, 2015 the state of Tennessee was approved by the Southern Regional Education Board (SREB) to join the State Authorization Reciprocity Agreement (SARA).

SARA is an initiative of states nationwide to make distance education courses more accessible to students across state lines.
