Flexibility

We get it—you’re balancing a lot.

Regardless of what you choose, you’ll find that our offerings are designed so that you can learn on your schedule. That means short, digestible topics, extensive access to instructors and materials, and lots of options for discussion and support.

Support

We have a strong focus on accessibility, and we work to ensure that our online students have access to the same types of assistance available to our on-campus students. Tech support is only an email or phone call away, and our instructors and academic coaches ensure that students always receive the highest level of support, no matter what issues they might face.

Community

When you take a course online at UVM, you’ll be interacting with instructors and students who share your interest and passion. You’ll be connected to the campus community as well, with access to an abundance of resources, such as online lectures and events that can enhance your experience. Even after your course or program is finished, we have ways to help you maintain the connections you’ve built, while also helping you to forge new ones. Some of our programs offer social media opportunities to connect, while others have targeted online community sites that welcome new members constantly. You’ll also have access to your course materials for 12 months after you finish the course, which gives you ample opportunity to revisit and reconnect as you move forward.
