The Kern River Valley campus provides students the opportunity to take courses online from a distance. Through the Internet and Canvas, students can interact with faculty in a virtual classroom setting, allowing for flexibility and convenience in the student's schedule.

Students can access 19 accredited online associate degrees, 18 online certificates, and more than 160 courses per year. The college encourages prospective students to take the Online Readiness Assessment in the Is Online Learning Really for You? section to help determine whether an online course would fit their lifestyle and needs.
