Virtual College at Fort Hays State University grew from the Department of Continuing Education and Learning Technology in 1999. The school offers dozens of degree programs ranging from associates and bachelor’s to master’s and doctorate as well as certificate and endorsements, all completely online. Fields of study cover the traditional scope of higher education and include accounting and business, education, information technology, healthcare and social sciences. Graduate degree programs feature MBA, education and nursing areas. Virtual College maintains strategic partnership with the military for the benefit of veterans and active duty personnel. A tuition assistance plan is but one of the resources available to students in uniform; the University’s “military and family friendly committee” works to provide the best learning experiences possible. All online students have access to the school’s multi-tier technical support and the career services center.
