  • Create your schedule: complete course modules at your own pace. Accelerate your education or take time as needed.
  • Mentorship when you need it: enjoy access to faculty, tutors, and other online resources.
  • Subscription-based fees: pay a flat, six-month subscription rate and take as many courses as you can complete.

Traditional online

  • Flexible start times: select from multiple starting dates to create a course schedule that works best for you.
  • Interactive course structure: engage with peers and faculty in online discussions, and complete online assignments and exams on a set schedule.
  • Regular support: stay on track with direct mentorship and regular communication with your professors.
  • Tuition and fees by credit hour: tuition and fees are tied to course credits.
