Online Programming at HBCUs

As more and more jobs continue to require an education beyond high school, more and more adults are finding the need to enroll in college.  For some, especially teens, its often easy and makes sense to enroll in a traditional college program.  But for many, including non-traditional students who may already be working full-time, have a family or are older, the idea of being in class each day doesn't fit their needs and lifestyle.  What if you are one of those students, but you also would like to attend an HBCU instead of a college you've seen advertised on a bus or a for-profit college?  Well, you're in luck!  Nearly 1/3 of all HBCUs offer online degree programs and many others, including Stillman College and Dillard University, also offer online courses for students who need flexibility. Through Georgia's eCore program Savannah State University provides students the opportunity to complete their first two years of college completely online. Knoxville College** recently restructed its entire academic program and is now offering all of its programs-which are associate's degrees- online. From certificate programs to doctoral degrees, HBCUs offer a variety of options for students who prefer to complete their education online.


The Hundred-Seven has prepared a listing of HBCUs that offer online programming, starting with those that offer degrees in the most popular online degree programs.
