What is DE at A&M?

Here at A&M, we define Distance Education programs (degrees or certificates) as involving a program in which a student may complete more than one-half of the semester credit hours required for the program through a combination of distance education courses.

Distance education courses are web-based (online) courses and are classified in to two categories: Web-Based On Campus and Web-based Off Campus. Each one is dependent upon your physical location as a student.
 
Web-based Off Campus Courses

  • Intended for students in a DE program
  • Distance education differential tuition is charged, and is charged regardless of whether the student is a distance education student or an on-campus student
  • On-campus service fees are waived

Web-based On Campus

  • Intended for on-campus students
  • Tuition and fee assessment is consistent with traditionally delivered on-campus courses
  • On-campus service fees are charged regardless of student’s physical location

Individual colleges independently administer and coordinate DE programs at the university. View the list of DE contacts here.
