ASU Online

ASU Online provides opportunities for anyone located anywhere to access the education of an innovative, tier one research university with the same award wining faculty who inspire on-ground classrooms.

Challenge

Access to higher education not only benefits one’s economic outlook but also the possibility to pursue and achieve one’s passions. Higher education provides this opportunity, but only if that higher education is accessible. ASU Online believes that everyone deserves a high-quality education and has designed an innovative and technology-enabled digital learning experience with student success in mind.

Approach

ASU Online works with instructional designers to create courses that are unique to the subject matter and the student. From the very beginning, students are set up to reach their full potential. At ASU Online, our gold standard equates to the student’s bright future.

The Story

ASU Online provides individuals returning to school or just beginning their educational career the chance to complete their degree online from anywhere, anytime. ASU Online offers students:

  • A wide array of program choices; there are currently more than 100 undergraduate and graduate degree programs available to students.
  • Six start dates per year, allowing students to begin their degree program sooner.
  • Access to cutting-edge educational technology.
  • Courses developed and taught by the same world-class faculty that teach on ASU’s ground campuses.

An online education is absolutely on par with what you can get
face-to-face.

Key Insights

Our custom-designed degree programs and courses are delivered online by the same award-winning faculty who teach on ground. Courses are designed using state-of-the-art tools and technologies, providing students with a direct connection to the knowledge and expertise of ASU’s faculty.

With innovative learning tools, ASU Online designs courses with both the degree program and the student in mind.
