What is DE at Texas 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.
For additional information related to Web-Based On Campus and Web-Based Off Campus courses, please visit our resources page.

Texas A&M University is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges to award degrees at the bachelors’, masters’, doctoral and professional levels.

State authorization allows Texas A&M University to offer educational opportunities to students among other states and nationwide.

If planning to gain a degree that may lead to a professional licensure or certification, we encourage students to reach out to the state and licensing agency in which the license will be held to ensure acceptance from our programs.

State institutional compliance may be obtained by individual state by state compliance or by participation in reciprocity through State Authorization Reciprocity Agreements (SARA). Texas A&M University has been approved to participate in the National Council for State Authorization Reciprocity Agreements (NC-SARA).
