SMU Online

SMU Online offers individual courses, short certificate and diploma programs, degree completion programs, and complete degree programs through our Virtual Learning Platform (VLP).

What Is Online Learning?

Online learning, sometimes called distance learning, refers to educational programs conducted via the internet. Online learning has become an increasingly popular choice over the years because of the flexibility it allows in terms of scheduling and location. Online students can study from any location with an internet connection, and sometimes even attend their classes on their own schedules.

Students of online programs can conduct their coursework online, including reading texts, seeking support, interacting with peers and instructors, etc. Online college and university programs make use of reading assignments, discussion groups, collaborative peer work, videos and other resources.
