Distance Education


We’re happy you chose College of The Albemarle (COA) and we want to help you reach your educational goals.

During your educational career here, you’ll need to regularly access myCourses for course content (syllabi, class schedules, class assignments, quizzes/exams), which your instructor has placed in myCourses. Therefore, we strongly encourage you to complete the online class “COA 101 – Introduction to myCourses (Moodle) for Students” to become familiar with this environment right from the start.

If you want to enroll in a fully online class, you’re required to complete “COA 101 – Introduction to myCourses (Moodle) for Students” with a 90 percent or higher for the class total before you can register for a fully online classes. If you’re not successful the first time, you may re-take the COA 101 class exam again until you receive a passing grade.

Log in to myCourses (Moodle). Use the same username and password you created when you activated your COA accounts. If you have reset your password since activating your COA account, use the new password. Once logged you’re logged in to myCourses, you’ll see at a minimum and have access to the following:

  • COA 101 – Introduction to myCourses (Moodle) for Students
  • ASC – Academic Support Center

Note: Due to audit requirements, all other classes won’t be visible until the first day of classes, starting at 12:15 a.m., at which time you’ll be able to view your current semester classes.
