New technology solutions are vastly changing and improving the ways we teach and learn. Distance Education courses are created to utilize that technology to deliver courses to students wherever they are. Classes are delivered to the student - anywhere in the world! Distance courses are highly portable, providing students additional flexibility in scheduling and completing classes. Many of the barriers that have prevented students, both traditional and non-traditional, from pursuing their academic goals have now been laid aside.

Many University Core Curriculum (UCC) courses are available online.  Please contact the Distance Education office to confirm if the UCC course for your chosen degree can be completed online.

Most Distance Education online courses are offered in the full semester format, which is 16 weeks for Fall and Spring terms and 10 weeks for Summer terms.  A select number of online courses are offered in accelerated formats: 14-week, 12-week, 10-week, and 8-week. Students can consult the Distance Education schedule of courses for a given semester to see which courses are offered in an accelerated format for that term.  The Distance Education schedule of courses can be found at https://www.vinu.edu/web/distance-education/schedules, or by contacting the Distance Education office at 1-800-880-7961.

Students interested in pursuing their degrees through Vincennes University’s Distance Education Program are subject to the University’s standard admissions requirements. Students may apply online at https://www.vinu.edu/apply. Students may register for Distance Education courses by contacting the Distance Education office. Students choosing the distance education option are required to develop the same competencies and satisfy the same degree requirements as campus based programs. Credits earned through the Distance Education Program are applicable to the University’s residency requirements.

Financial Aid is available for eligible students taking distance education courses. Eligibility is determined in the same manner as for other campus-based programs. Students should refer to the Financial Aid section of this catalog for specific information and may contact the Financial Aid Office at Vincennes University for course eligibility determinations.

Students with credits earned through CLEP or Dantes (DSST) standardized testing programs, and/or credits earned through other colleges or universities may request that Vincennes University award appropriate transfer credit toward their degree programs. Students should arrange to have official transcripts forwarded to the Office of the Registrar for transfer consideration. Military students desiring an evaluation of military training and experience for college credit according to approved ACE guidelines, should contact the Military Education Program office at Vincennes University.
