Realizing that it is often difficult for students to come to the campus for a traditional curriculum, the institution has developed specific programs that may be taken off-campus. Distance education is comparable to resident study in that it is academically rigorous and demands self-discipline. To apply for the distance education program, the student must meet the same admission requirements as resident students. Distance education students enroll for courses in a manner identical to resident students. Students enroll at the beginning of each quarter according to the published academic calendar, and all coursework must be completed by the end of the quarter. Students may submit assignments as email attachments or regular mail as advised by
the professor-of-record for each course.
