Online programs have been offered at La Sierra University for over 10 years, allowing students the flexibility and convenience of obtaining a high degree without sacrificing schedule commitments or traveling to campus for classes. Using both synchronous and asynchronous formats, curriculum content is identical to on-campus coursework; all programs fall under the school’s accreditation and course start dates are available quarterly. Many individual classes are available online; the master’s teaching program is 100% online. Introductory support is clearly available on the website featuring Blackboard (the school’s content delivery system), access to the student network and technical support. General resources and support services available include admissions, financial aid and enrollment, access to the bookstore and library, academic assistance and advising and access to the career services center featuring counsel and guidance for next steps.
