Auburn University launches distance and continuing education program website

AUBURN UNIVERSITY – Auburn University has created a comprehensive, online resource for distance and continuing education programs to give current and potential students convenient access to information about educational opportunities across campus.

The website, www.auburn.edu/online, pulls together in one location all distance and continuing education programs in undergraduate, graduate, professional and personal enrichment. A list of available resources and additional information can be found at the website.

“The delivery of Auburn’s eLearning programs and course offerings is an essential part of our land-grant mission and supports our ability to provide educational opportunities to the citizens of Alabama who can’t come to campus,” said Provost Timothy Boosinger. “It is essential that our traditional and non-traditional students are able to access Auburn University’s online offerings in a way that is simple, direct and showcases the distinct features and unique capabilities of our programs.”

The website will allow individuals to expand personal knowledge, advance career skills or earn a college degree.

“Online courses are becoming a big part of education worldwide, and Auburn is getting a lot of attention about providing online courses,” said Greg Ruff, director of engineering outreach and continuing education. “The addition of an uncomplicated web method to reach Auburn’s online offerings will go a long way toward satisfying potential student inquiries about our courses and degrees.”

Auburn University’s online master of education degree program was recently ranked
first in the nation by TheBestSchools.org.
