Online Course Delivery Growing Steadily

Online courses allow students more flexibility as they work toward their degrees.

Plymouth State delivers more than 500 online courses to both undergraduate and graduate level students, using an entirely online format or a hybrid, combining face-to-face and distance learning. PSU’s gateway for alternative access to educational programs, the Frost School of Continuing and Professional Studies, has experienced steady and robust growth in the last few years, particularly in online course offerings. This growth is one of many factors that have contributed to rising graduation rates at PSU, with the 2011 commencement marking the highest in two decades.

The Frost School, whose mission is to provide alternative access to PSU’s quality educational programs through online, evening, and intensive courses, delivers year-round courses, including Winterim (January term) and summer sessions.   The program enables additional flexibility for coursework for traditional undergraduates, offers adults and working professionals access to higher education, and serves commuting and transfer students. Numerous transfer agreements exist with the Community College System of New Hampshire (CCSNH) institutions for a variety of bachelor degree programs, including 2+2 agreements. Seamless transfer is further enhanced by PSU’s participation in NHtransfer.org, an online resource that helps give students a clear understanding of transfer relationships among programs and courses of participating institutions.
