Distance Learning.
Online Learning.
What is it?

Many terms are used to describe the experience of learning outside a classroom and methods vary from real-time teleconferencing to text-only versions of courses. The real question is: What should it be?

At ETU believe it should put you in control of your own learning. You choose when and where you will study, and when to ask for help. It should challenge you intellectually, even through new ways of learning. It should be innovative, bringing alternatives to going to college that make school a very "service" oriented atmosphere. Most of all, it should be an experience that prepares you to improve your career and your life.

How it Works
Working with our facility and staff, you'll use solid course materials and participate in online chats and study groups to progress through these courses in a 12-month annual term, then enroll in your next term. It is recommended that students complete an average of two courses every four months. You can study when and where you want with our flexible self-spaced courses. This flexibility also allows you to finish sooner and enroll in the next courses toward earning your degree.

As you progress through your degree to upper level courses in your major, you may want to consider customizing your program by earning professional certifications, such as the Health, MCSE or CCNA, that can count as electives. Once you have passed the certification exam, you'll receive the academic credit toward your degree and have earned your certification too. Your admissions and student services advisors will help you decide when the time is right.
