Many of our academic programs are offered in a fully online format. An online course is as rigorous, informative, and rewarding as one taught in a classroom. Our use of emerging technology and interactive formats creates a unique experience. Additionally, all of our programs are taught by highly respected faculty who are experts in their fields and have considerable online education experience.

Our undergraduate degree programs are for students who want to finish their degree and have already earned 24 or more credits at an accredited institution.
