Online Programs

What is an Online Program?

Many academic programs in higher education have at least some content offered online, including individual courses, homework assignments, and class research projects. What constitutes an "online" program is not always well-defined. In addition, the percentage of online content for any academic program changes frequently.

The vast majority of ABET-accredited programs are offered mostly on-site.

The following ABET-accredited programs are offered in a 100-percent online format. This list is updated annually in October.
