Distance education is regulated by title 5, chapter 6, subchapter 3, starting with section 55200. Distance Education is defined in section 55200 as instruction in which the instructor and student are separated by distance and interact through communication technology. All distance education is subject to the general requirements of Title 5, Division 6, Chapter 6, as well as the specific requirements of subchapter 3, article 1. 

These regulations refer to all courses that are developed with the intent that individual classes or sections, or any portion of the course, may be scheduled as distance education instead of traditional, face‐to­‐face instruction. This includes courses referred to as “hybrid” which combine traditional, face-­to-­face instruction and distance education with either synchronous or asynchronous instructor­‐student interaction through communication technology.​
