What should I look for in a distance-learning program?

A. We recommend you search for a program that has extensive experience delivering distance learning, professional accreditation (CAEP), low student attrition, dedicated full-time faculty, high student satisfaction, and minimal travel. Unlike correspondence courses, the University of Cincinnati’s distance learning programs are not self-paced or independent study. They have the benefit of traditional education, like instructor-led structured curriculum, with the convenience and interactivity of online technologies.
