Standard 12.5


12.5 Learning experiences required within each course are equal in scope and rigor to similar courses at that level in American higher education.  This is especially the case with graduate courses, which require the appropriately rigorous academic and scholarly level of student learning.


The Program Directors administrate both their online and on-campus courses. Online courses use the same equally qualified faculty, textbooks, course descriptions, learning outcomes, and grading systems as those utilized in on-campus courses. Learning experiences for online courses includes discussion, audio, video, quizzes, exams, research papers, journals, and projects. These components offer a rich online experience and encourage a sense of community for the student.
