About Online Learning at CSI

CSI online course delivery options to help you succeed

Online course delivery can have many benefits for you as a learner, including flexibility, accessibility, a diversity of learning opportunities, and even affordability.  

Multiple course delivery options at CSI enable you to choose the class delivery that best fits your learning preferences and lifestyle. Course offerings at CSI include:

  • Traditional in-person classes meeting on campus or at one of our off-campus centers
  • Asynchronous online classes, which you can complete on the internet from any location on your own time
  • Synchronous online classes enabled using video conferencing
  • Hybrid learning opportunities that combine in-person and online experiences 

Before you choose an online course or program

A student’s goals may differ when evaluating online courses and programs, and quality is often a key consideration. The College of Southern Idaho is accredited by the Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities. A peer-reviewed process has ensured that CSI meets or exceeds the criteria for the assessment of institutional quality. As a student in one of our online classes, here is what that will mean for you:

  • All CSI instructors’ course syllabi will inform you of required campus meetings, authentication measures, test dates, and special equipment needed (such as webcam, speakers, headset, etc.). Additionally, you will learn about test-taking procedures, test sites, associated fees, student responsibility, including code of conduct, and Student Right to Know information via course syllabi. 
  • CSI will verify your identity when you participate in an online course by requiring the use of a secure sign-in and password. All of your online work will be submitted via the college’s LMS (Canvas) or by CSI email, the college’s official email system. This process will protect your student privacy and the integrity of your student record.
  • The course outcomes you would meet in a face-to-face class will be the same as you will meet in an online class. The course content and course outcomes remain the same in all modalities.
