4. Attend Online Classes

You'll have access to lectures, video presentations, instructional materials, and have the ability to chat with your faculty and fellow students. 24 hours a day, we work within your schedule, every day of the week from anywhere. 

5. Complete Your Degree in 2 Years or Less

You will receive a syllabus on the first day of class outlining all course requirements. While there will be

assignment due dates, there typically are no requirements for when you have to log on or do your work. You are free to read assignments, study, participate in class discussions, complete exams, download lectures, or view comments at your own pace.

Once the course begins, your lectures and assignments will be posted in a forum and will remain there for the entire semester. The tools for submitting your work are housed on one platform – Blackboard. You can log on to Kean Online whenever it is convenient for you-24 hours a day, seven days a week. How you study, where and when are all up to you.
