Academic Outreach

The Office of Academic Outreach serves the University through the coordination of programs designed to increase access to 'learning for a lifetime' for select academic and post-baccalaureate professional development programs.

Academic Programs

The University’s academic credit online, off-campus, and summer session programs are coordinated by the Office of Academic Outreach.  These include the Early Start Options and Concurrent Enrollment Partnership programs, academic credit options for certain professional development programs, and contract programs with local organizations. Program areas are listed to the right.

Professional Development

Academic Outreach provides noncredit professional development programs that have a direct connection to an academic area and are generally considered post-baccalaureate in terms of knowledge or skills. Program areas are listed to the left.
