Online College Learning
Learning online is different than learning in a classroom. That’s why at Strayer University, we’ve spent thousands of hours perfecting the way we teach and support our students online.
You lead a busy life. You have a hectic schedule. We make it possible to fit education into both. We make education work for working adults.
If you can get online, you can get to class. That’s one of the primary benefits of our online classes. They work with your schedule. 24 hours a day. Seven days a week. From anywhere in the world. Simply log in and learn.
Learning online doesn’t mean you’re learning alone. We’ve developed online features to ensure our students can collaborate, communicate, and feel connected to their professors and peers. And all of our online students have access to our on-campus support and resources.
The Best of Both Worlds
While we’ve gone to great lengths in perfecting the way we teach online, we also understand that some students may prefer a classroom setting for certain courses. That’s why we offer students the opportunity to take a combination of online and on-campus classes. It’s all about finding what works best for you.
A landmark study published by the U.S. Department of Education found that students who took a combination of classes online and on campus performed better than students taking the same courses in a classroom setting alone.
Convenient campus locations
Close to home. Close to work. Easy to reach. Our campuses are located in the city, in the suburbs, and near major roads. So no matter where you’re going, chances are good, there’s a convenient campus for you.
Flexible class schedules
Evening classes. Weekend classes. Take your pick. We know your 9-to-5 is booked. That’s why our class schedules are designed to work with your real-life schedule.
Online learning options
Online classes. Maximum flexibility. If you can get online, you can get to class. We offer two types of online learning to provide the support and flexibility you need:
Online in Real-Time: These online classes occur at set times on evenings and weekends. You’ll hear live audio from your professor, engage with a “virtual blackboard,” and have the ability to interact with your classmates and your professor via live text messaging.
Online Anytime: These classes occur completely on your time anywhere you can get online. Your living room. Your kitchen table. 24 hours a day. Seven days a week. You’ll have access to recorded lectures, video presentations, instructional materials, and the ability to chat with your fellow students.
On campus. Online. Or a combination of the two. Whatever works best for you.
