Questions about how our online program works, whether it’s right for you, and how it compares to the classroom environment.

How does an online course work?

It’s just like being in the classroom, from the convenience of your desk or laptop. Everything is completed online, including registration, financial aid and book buying. You learn in small, interactive classes. You’ll also receive one-on-one guidance and feedback from your instructor on a consistent basis.

Why take an online course?

It’s one of the most convenient, flexible, and affordable options. It allows you to do all of your class work from home and you don’t have to account for excess living expenses.

If I’m working a full-time job, will an online class work for me?

Absolutely. We offer flexible class hours that allow you to properly balance work, family and other responsibilities. Plus, the Allen School accelerated program allows you to graduate six months sooner than most other schools.

Is there a special graduation ceremony?

At the end of the online program, graduates are invited to come to New York City for a cap and gown ceremony, and an opportunity to finally meet your classmates in person.

Is there a difference in the quality of education online vs. in the classroom?

Studies show that many students actually learn better online than in a traditional classroom setting. The main reason is that you're not passively listening to a lecture; rather you're actively engaged and interacting with the course. Also, students have more time to think about the subject matter with less classroom distractions.

Do online courses offer a collaborative environment?

Yes! You'll be part of a highly connected online community that includes peers and faculty from all over the country. You’ll receive customized instruction and one-on-one feedback from your teacher. Plus, through e-mail and discussion groups you can stay in close contact with your classmates and counselors, building lasting relationships.

Access to a computer with high-speed Internet service and speakers.

How are exams conducted?
