About the online bachelor's degree program (as submitted by school)

The student and the professor interact through lectures and assignments delivered to the student via the Internet. The student completes reading and written assignments using their textbook and other reference resources. There are no specific times the student must be online, but normally the professor has "office hours" available for discussion with students. The student is required to take online exams with proctors that are approved by the College, and grades are viewed online.
