Campus and Online Learning Formats

Learn in a format that fits your lifestyle. You can attend classes online, at one of our locations nationwide, or do a combination of both.

Get the flexibility you need to balance work, school and your life with the convenience of taking classes on campus or online. No matter which format you choose, you’ll learn the same curriculum in an environment that focuses on collaboration. You’ll work in learning teams with your peers and gain valuable skills in communication, problem-solving, teamwork and other areas that can help in your professional development.

We also emphasize the use of technology as part of your college experience. Our technical support team is available to help you day or night to meet our computer requirements and address any challenges that may arise. They'll even call your computer manufacturer to help you resolve any issues that might prevent you from using our software.

Although our learning formats are widely available, not all programs are available in all locations or in both online and on-campus formats. Your Enrollment Representative can help you determine which program and learning format will fit your lifestyle and academic goals best.

Your Learning Options

Campus-Based Classes

Degree programs are available at many of our campus locations. Our seminar-style classes are generally held once a week in the evenings, although some locations do offer day or weekend classes. You'll work with your classmates once a week in a small group setting, too.

Online Classes

Online classes, which run five to nine weeks at a time, are another option. You can take classes anywhere you have a computer and an Internet connection. You'll log on three to four times a week to participate in class discussions, complete assignments and access course materials.
