Distance Education

Use of distance technology, in particular the delivery of online courses, provides unique opportunities for inclusion of students outside the U.S. in graduate education programming at Penn State. This activity can be established without a formal agreement. If this activity is developed as part of an agreement, programs should consider how specific courses that currently exist in an online or other distance-delivered format or that could be converted or developed for online delivery might contribute to collaborative graduate education initiatives.  Per Policy AD-55, academic units should work with World Campus and the Graduate School, when applicable, to deliver courses that will enroll students who will complete a course totally online and not attend resident classes on a Penn State campus.
