What Does the Online Classroom Look Like?

We use one centralized platform where you can log into your classroom. There you can get assignments, interact with faculty and peers, reply to message boards, and more.

Each week, you’ll complete a series of videos, quizzes, interactive activities and projects through our online platform, available to access 24/7. 

Online courses can start off great, but staying motivated can be a challenge. So, you’ll get regular feedback reports (and emails or phone calls if you fall behind!) to keep you on track. 

Because it's online there are no long commutes, traffic jams or crowded freeways to deal with on the way to class. Wherever you are, we bring your class to you

We know your military schedule can be unpredictable so we offer flexible delivery. Slow down, speed up or pause your course at any time
