Some mortician schools offering online courses include Amarillo College in Texas, Vincennes University in Indiana, Pittsburgh Institute of Mortuary Science in Pennsylvania, Nassau Community College in New York, St. Petersburg College in Florida and Commonwealth Institute in Texas. Students at these colleges still need to do hands-on activities at approved facilities in order to complete a degree, warns the American Board of Funeral Service Education.
Online mortuary science programs are commonly offered as associate degree programs and may require previous coursework for enrollment. These programs usually require clinical practice doing embalming and restoration at a funeral home. Some mortician schools with online courses don't allow students in certain states to enroll due to licensure requirements, so it's important to check with admissions for eligibility.
