Colorado State University-Global Campus/Online Plus
Posted by Staff Writers on May 23, 2012
Colorado State University Online Plus programs and educational opportunities, offered through the Division of Continuing Education, support the school’s land-grant mission by providing graduate and undergraduate degrees, professional development training, certificate programs, online credit and noncredit courses, and industry specific training via the Web and at learning centers in Denver, Loveland and Brighton.
Colorado State University’s roots go back to 1870, when the institution was founded as the Agricultural College of Colorado. The school opened its doors to students in 1879 with President Elijah Edwards and two faculty members.
Today, Colorado State University has nearly 27,000 undergraduate students. It has approximately 1,550 faculty in eight colleges and 55 academic departments and boasts more than 170,000 alumni.
Colorado State’s business school is accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB), a distinction given to only about 5 percent of the world’s business schools. CSU is also accredited regionally by the Higher Learning Commission and is a member of the North Central Association of Schools and Colleges.
Colorado State University offers more than 25 online and distance graduate degrees.
The school does not offer any undergraduate degree programs online, but it does offer several individual courses.
Undergraduate requirements vary by the type of student. Follow the directions on the school website to apply.
To help students in the virtual classroom, Colorado State developed “distance section coordinators.” These working professionals (who have all gone through the master’s degree process themselves) wear many hats. They serve as mentors, sources, class monitors, assignment graders, discussion leaders and faculty assistants to bolster the learning environment.
Along with these coordinators, online students will also have access to the school’s academic advisers and career services team members.
Students enrolled in the online MBA are given an HP notebook.
