Distance Education

Please report on any programs offered by your institution that meet the following criteria:

Programs or certificates for which 50% or more of the credits are offered through technologically mediated instruction to students and degree completion programs offered on line.  Not included are on-line courses offered outside the context of a predominantly on-line degree program, nor technologically mediated instruction provided to campus-based students.

Having this information will allow the Commission to:

  • certify eligibility for federal financial aid for students in these programs;
  • respond to inquiries about the accreditation status of electronically offered degree and certificate programs; and,
  • better understand the scope and dimension of such activities at individual institutions and in the region.

Please consult the Commission’s “Policy Statement on the Review of Electronically Offered Degree Programs” or contact Commission staff if you have any questions.
