Delivery Definitions


  • All courses are delivered 100% online so that a student from overseas can take the course (even if none of them are).
  • All graduate courses should have synchronous meetings, in addition to asynchronous work for students. Our department strives to schedule these considering the timezones of student locations.
  • Any required student onsite time, such as for doctoral defenses, do not disqualify a program from being considered an online program. These requirements must be clearly posted and told to students ahead of time. 


  • At least some courses have onsite course meeting requirements, either in evenings or on weekends. The majority of these courses are still online (to meet distance learning requirements).
  • Courses may still have online synchronous meeting requirements and still be considered a hybrid course.
  • "Executive" tends to be a form of hybrid delivery, often comprised of weekend meetings 4-5 times per semester on campus per course, plus online (synchronous and asynchronous) meetings in between.

On Site

  • Any course in the program meets primarily (more than 50%) on site in a traditional face-to-face format.
