Credit courses

If you'd like to earn credit for a class but find that coming to (or staying on) campus is not an option, online learning can be the perfect solution.

Most of our for-credit online courses are delivered via the web-based learning system Blackboard/Canvas. You complete your assignments and examinations within a scheduled time frame, but you have the option of getting a head start on readings and lectures. Generally, you interact with the instructor and other students by phone, e-mail, and/or discussion boards.

Most of our for-credit online courses are offered during our Winter and Summer Sessions. Most classes are open to anyone who wishes to enroll and register.
