Minnesota Online Colleges and Universities

Online Colleges in Minnesota

Overview

The popularity of online education continues to grow as programs evolve and students look for more options to access higher education. The advantages of online degree programs include courses with flexible scheduling and the ability to access degree programs that may not be available locally. Students can now earn degrees in Business and Management, Education and Teaching, Medical Administration, Nursing, Computer Science and Engineering, Design and much more online. For people wondering how online education works, students access the classroom over the internet.

To access the classroom, students typically use an online portal to attend lectures as well as download assignments and other handouts. Chat sessions are then used to promote student-teacher and student-student interactions. For some classes, a minimum amount of participation in these sessions is required. When it comes to classes, lecture times vary depending on the course and the teacher. Some classes require students to attend online lectures at specific times. Other classes allow students to download or access lectures online at their own convenience. For exams, some courses require students to take tests during specific time periods, while others allow students to submit their work through the portal or by email. If the online degree program is connected to a local college or university in Minnesota, students may also have access to teachers on campus during office hours.

For people who live in Duluth, Minneapolis, Rochester or St. Paul, where there are several local colleges, online education is becoming an increasingly popular alternative to traditional campus-based degree programs. To save you time, we have compiled a list of local colleges that offer online programs along with national colleges offering courses to students in Minnesota. When speaking with an admissions counselor, be sure to ask about how students access their classes, the typical amount of student-teacher and student-student interactions and how students take exams.

Accreditations and affiliations: when speaking with an admissions counselor be sure to ask about the types of accreditations and affiliations the school has completed.
