All credits earned through distance education are recorded on a UMM transcript. Distance education courses are the same as on-campus courses and are accredited by NEASC just like on-campus classes. A student currently enrolled in a degree program elsewhere is responsible for checking with the appropriate official at the degree-granting institution to make certain the course will transfer. UMM’s courses have a good reputation and a number of our professors see students return for course after course, which is always a good sign!

Is it hard to schedule the coursework?

Online courses remove the traditional boundaries of time and location for the distance learner. Through the use of study guides, textbooks, videotapes, and the Web, students can participateUMM Student in the GIS computer lab in an individualized mode of instruction offering a high degree of flexibility.
