DOCS Meets Needs of Working Students

DOCS offers online and low-residency programs ideal for non-traditional students and adult learners.

Many students are working and have family responsibilities that make taking classes during the day impossible. The Division of Online and Continuing and Studies (DOCS) was created to meet the needs of working students by offering classes in the evening, online, and on weekends.

The Division of Online and Continuing Studies has begun offering courses during the last eight weeks of each semester. These courses allow students who have fallen behind or withdrew from a course to stay on track.

The DOCS offers Continuing Education classes during Winterim and summer for students to catch up or get ahead. Most courses are offered online allowing students to study from home and to complete coursework at a time that works with their work schedules. The Continuing Education programs and the online classes, in particular, help students stay on track for a timely graduation.

Office of Online Education Created

The Office of Online Education was created to support faculty and students in the creative and effective integration of technology into the learning environment—both in the classroom and online. Throughout the year, DOCS offers programming to improve instructional technologies and their application within the classroom.
