Our online delivery programs are designed with student success in mind. Most of our online programs are not self-paced, this provides a similar level of support and interaction with your instructor and fellow students as you would have in an on-campus program—with the convenience of being at home! Many of our programs also have an hybrid option, meaning both and online classes as well as on-campus classes. With student success our priority, our curriculum designers keep some classes on-campus when in-person learning is determined to be the best format and environment for you to develop important skills.
