Online Courses

Online courses are offered over the Internet and can be accessed, via your assigned password, at any time, day or night. Instructor contact will take place through e-mail. Testing locations will be assigned, and, because of the need for a password, the textbook packet indicated in this brochure or on the Brookdale web page must be purchased. Many online courses require an initial orientation meeting, and some require proctored testing.

Interactive (ITV) Courses

ITV courses are broadcast from either the Lincroft or Western Monmouth campus to the Brookdale Higher Education Centers in Western Monmouth, Asbury Park, Long Branch, Wall and Bayshore. Students use interactive technology to connect with the instructor, and are able to see, hear and participate in the class, all at an off-campus location which may be more convenient.

The College was founded in 1967 and is sponsored by the citizens of Monmouth County through the Board of Chosen Freeholders.
