The advent of the Internet and inexpensive home computers now make it possible for Judson University to offer university courses through the mediation of these new technologies. No longer is it necessary to live near or on campus in order to gain many of the benefits of a Judson University education. Nor are online students required to be at a particular place at a specified time. Consequently, many students who formerly were unable to attend the university because of job and family responsibilities can now obtain an education while sitting at a computer in the comfort of their home. For more information refer to the Center for Adult Professional Studies.
Students must see their advisor for registration information. Online courses may be taken by any Judson student whose GPA is 2.5 or higher. This includes Prep students, traditional undergraduate students, adult undergraduate students, and distance learning students (not officially enrolled Judson students).
Who are good candidates for online courses? Students who are self-motivated, who can follow directions easily, and who are wise managers of their time. Students need a basic understanding of using technology (computers, a basic word processing program (Word 2007 or 2010), and BlackBoard (our course delivery management system). You also must have access to the internet (dial-up is too slow) through a reliable service provider.
