Online Programs

Online learning refers to the program, or part of it, being delivered remotely i.e., the student joins the class via the internet. 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.
