Online Program Accreditation
We evaluate programs that use a variety of delivery methods: on-site instruction, online instruction, and those having components of both methods. The programs are evaluated against the same criteria regardless of delivery method.
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.
When ABET categorizes a program as “100% online”, it means that it is possible to meet the requirements to graduate from a program while receiving all course content in an online manner.
