Distance Education is fully integrated into many programs offered by the college. Courses are available as wholly online or in hybrid format. The hybrid format includes supplemental, replacement and emporium models, giving students a variety of options to achieve individual learning goals. Assessment of student learning outcomes is performed regularly to maintain program quality.
The courses are evaluated by their home program curriculum committee. Additional quality standards for course design are applied and assessed using a quality rubric. Courses are reviewed over time to document ongoing compliance and improvement.
Distance education offerings as a whole are evaluated using an adaptation of a national tool: Quality Scorecard for the Administration of Online Programs. As part of the College’s commitment to quality, the College is a member of the Online Learning Consortium, formerly Sloan-C, an international organization committed to quality online education.
