New Students

The Global Campus is made up of On-demand and Livestream Courses

Global Campus Students

  • Global Campus students have access to all of the services and tools as students who attend classes on campus do. There are some services and expectations specific to the Global Campus and online learning that are described in this orientation.

On-demand Classes

  • Each course follows a weekly schedule for assignments which is outlined in the syllabus and course calendar. What day and time you access the course to complete work is up to you but the due dates for assignments must be met. Courses are delivered through Blackboard Learn, which houses all of the information students need in its virtual environment.

Livestream Classes

  • Classes are held at a scheduled time and students meet virtually in Video Conferencing. Live faculty deliver key learning components, including short lectures, discussions, activities, and group projects. Course materials, including assignments, assessments, and supplemental content, are housed in Blackboard Learn and are available at any time.


  • Combination of Livestream and On-Demand. Students may freely switch between the delivery formats during the course, as all materials are available in any of the applicable delivery modalities.



All Global Campus classes utilize our Learning Management System (LMS): Blackboard.
