Merging state-of-the-art technology with the highest educational standards, the University Alliance Online (UA) works with regionally accredited universities to provide, via the Internet, associate’s, bachelor’s and master’s degrees and continuing education certificate programs in which no classroom attendance is ever required.
Through streaming video lectures and other advanced Internet technology, students enrolled in degree programs made available by UA can “attend class” anytime, anywhere – including in their homes, at work or even while they travel. Students earn the same education as a university’s on-campus students, plus they have access to online “digital tools” – such as an asynchronous bulletin board and chat rooms – that ensure an enhanced educational experience.
In UA, member universities are solely responsible for their own academic areas, including admissions, academic advisement, program coordination, educational content, faculty, grades, transcripts and the granting of degrees. UA is responsible for all program delivery, technical development and support, marketing, student enrollment and registration.
UA member institutions share core characteristics as regionally accredited universities but variations in histories, traditions, purposes and settings give each school its own distinctiveness.
Core characteristics common to all members of UA include:
– A strong commitment to a technologically enhanced e-Learning community that promotes student success, serves a diverse and well-prepared student body, fosters instructional excellence and provides academic assistance
– A desire to implement programs that meet student needs and provide the maximum opportunity for student and faculty development
– An aspiration to continuously improve the quality and effectiveness of all programs and student services
– A dedication to continuing education, public service and technical assistance
UA prides itself on making available via the Internet nationally recognized programs in such areas as business, computer information systems, health care management, project management and nursing. In its service to students, UA strives to provide each student with personal attention and service that begins before you apply and continues throughout your coursework. During your studies, assistance will never be more than a phone call or email away.
UA encourages communication among all elements of the academic community and operates on a policy that allows students to easily access faculty and administrators.
