Distance education provides learners with a convenient and flexible opportunity to go to college in a nontraditional environment. It is one of the fastest growing areas of UHD and offers an attractive alternative to on campus classes.


From single courses to complete programs, UHD offers a growing number of educational opportunities through distance education for those seeking to advance in their chosen careers by meeting educational objectives. Online distance education courses are distributed via the Internet. Video conferencing allows for live video instruction at sites conveniently located near you. Hybrid instruction offers some of the convenience of online classes while providing face to face contact time with your professor. We also offer a number of face to face programs. Whether you choose Online Courses, Video conferencing, Hybrid instruction or Face to Face instruction at a distance site, you are a part of the UHD student body.
