    • When are applications due?

      We accept applications year-round. Most courses for the majority of degree programs start on the first day of every month, so the application can be completed anytime. In addition, for some programs, you can actually enroll in your first course at the same time you apply for admission.

    • Can I receive financial aid?

      Yes! Funding is available through both the Federal Stafford Loan and the Federal Pell Grant (for undergraduates only). For students who desire a more flexible financing option, contact the Office of Financial Aid for credit-based educational loans.

    • How does online learning work?

      Online students are afforded several ways to engage with their education. There’s a self-directed format, meaning you can begin a course at the end of every month. Group learning typically consists of 10–15 students who follow a specific start-and-end date as well as various assignments due over the 10-week course. There are several other course formats as well.

    • Is the GRE or GMAT required for graduate programs?

      No. Our online graduate programs do not require the GRE or GMAT tests.
