Online Learning

Did you know that nearly 30% of American college students take at least one course online? The main appeal is flexibility—the opportunity to achieve your dreams through classes that fit your unique circumstances while still benefiting from the same content, core goals and credits as face-to-face classes. Online learning can be ideal for

  • Employees who travel frequently
  • Home-bound students
  • Home-schooled students
  • Military personnel
  • Single parents
  • Students who need maximum flexibility

Our online courses take one of the following formats.

  • Online—Delivered using various Internet technologies to enable distance learning with no face-to-face campus meetings required. Some online courses may require proctored in-person exams or other activities, so please check with an advisor or the instructor before registering.
  • Hybrid—Blends online and face-to-face instruction to meet the desired learning outcomes while reducing seated class time. The instructional ratio is 50:50 online to face-to-face instruction.
  • Videoconference—Conducted at two or more locations through two-way audio and video transmissions, with instructor present at one location and able to interact with students at all remote locations simultaneously.

We make it easy for you to figure out if online learning is right for you with our readiness survey, technical requirements and tips for how to succeed online. Whether you take a few online courses to supplement your traditional class schedule or are interested in one of our degree or certificate programs offered completely online, you can count on our online support services to make sure you’re on the right track.
