University College offers a diverse array of fully online and blended online (hybrid) courses. Online course options are available each term for most degree and certificate programs. Blended online courses combine on-campus class meetings with online activities and resources. Back-to-back courses permit a student to take two courses per evening. Each blended, back-to-back course meets for two hours, and additional instruction takes place online.

University College online courses are distinguished by small class sizes that engage students directly with faculty. Online courses can be accessed at convenient times. Instructors will assign weekly deadlines, keeping students motivated and on pace. Instructors may also occasionally offer live online office hours or discussion sessions.
