Distance at NEO

Northeastern Oklahoma A&M College offers a selection of distance courses for students to take in addition to the face-to-face classes taught on the Miami campus and off-campus locations. NEO now offers several academic programs fully online including Business Administration, Business Administration Technology, General Studies, Pre-Nursing, Elementary Education, Psychology and Sociology, Social Sciences, and Early Childhood Education. Distance courses are offered at Northeastern Oklahoma A&M College via the internet, interactive video (ITV), and hybrid modalities using Canvas, a personal learning environment. Our distance courses are based on guiding principles that are student-focused, learning-centered. Distance courses teach the same competencies and provide the same rigor as courses taught face-to-face in the classroom. You may contact your advisor or view the class schedule for a current list of courses offered at a distance.


  • The presentation of the material. Instead of attending lectures and having in-class discussions, the course content is presented through a learning management system where web pages, audio/video lectures, discussion boards, and other instructional technologies assist to deliver the course content.
  • The way you interact with your instructor and other students in the online course. In an online course, you will typically interact through communication tools provided for your course. These tools might include discussion boards, feedback from submitted assignments, and email.
  • The total learning experience. While you will cover the same material in the same amount of time as students in a traditional classroom setting, you may spend less time with your instructor and other students and more time learning on your own. However, you can be sure that your learning experience will be no less demanding.
  • Taking an exam from a distance. At least one major exam must be a proctored exam monitored either by the instructor or by an approved proctor. You may be offered an opportunity to take proctored tests on campus with your instructor or proctored through an online proctoring platform, ProctorU. View the ProctorU web page to learn more and to view pricing.
