What is the difference between online and hybrid?

As a student, you can choose to complete your program or certificate 100% online or in a hybrid format. Choosing a hybrid format means you’ll attend a mix of both online and on-campus courses. You have the option to change formats at any time throughout your program. Please note, however, that programs, course requirements and availability vary by location. Some courses may be available online only. All students enrolled in site-based programs will be required to take some coursework online and, for some programs and locations, a substantial portion of the program may be required to be completed online. 

Does choosing the online format affect my tuition costs?

No. Tuition is the same for both our hybrid and online learning formats. We assess tuition and expenses on a per-semester-credit basis. For more detailed information, see our Tuition and Financial Aid page.

How long will it take to complete my online degree or certificate?

The amount of time it takes for you to complete your degree or certificate will depend upon the number of courses you choose to take each semester. Our Academic Advisors  will work with you to put together a plan that fits your life and helps you meet your goals.

How do I access my coursework as an online learning student?

All course materials, assignments and discussions can be accessed 24/7 through our customized online learning platform—whether from your computer, mobile device browser or through our custom mobile app. You can also take advantage of our virtual library, web-based study tools and tutoring services. If you have additional questions or would like a demo of the online learning platform, please reach out to our Admissions Team.

What is included in the DeVry/Keller mobile app?

You can use our mobile app to access the online learning platform, complete coursework, view grades, register for classes, send messages, manage your tuition and more.

As an online learning student, will I have access to the same faculty support as a student who takes courses on campus?

Yes. Our online classes are taught by experienced professors who are available to answer questions and provide guidance via email, chat or phone. Online, one-on-one tutoring services are also available.

How will I interact with my classmates as an online student?

You can interact with your peers through our online learning platform via the discussion board, chat and email. In some classes, you may even participate in online group projects.

Will I earn a diploma? Can I participate in a graduation ceremony?

Yes. Upon successful program completion you will earn a diploma and can even choose to participate in a graduation ceremony in your area.
