When you continue your education online or at one of our satellite locations, you have the best of both worlds. Your classes will be led by faculty who are experts in their fields and focused on your success.; many teach on main campus, too. And if you need help along the way? We have been recognized for our outstanding student support services for distance learners.

Perhaps the best part? You have the convenience of furthering your education where you live and work, on your schedule.

Online and satellite programs are offered in condensed eight-week terms, and the degree you earn is the exact same degree you would earn on main campus.


Transferring credits

What courses will transfer? It’s one of the most common questions asked and a vital one to choosing the right school. We accept transferrable credits from regionally accredited schools and foreign colleges approved by the government. We offer several tools to help you determine exactly which credits you’ve already earned will carry over to CMU.
