Want to Learn On Campus AND Online?

Learning on campus gives you maximum potential for new friendships and networking, but learning online gives you maximum convenience.

You can do both! Many degrees offer several of the required classes online—plus the option of short summer courses.

Campus Life

From the Library to the Commons, you’ll find that there’s plenty of places to meet up with classmates and study. For your meals, you can choose between two buffet-style cafeterias. And at the end of the day, relax in your on-campus housing. (Your accommodations are separate from undergrad students, and you’ll only have one roommate.)
