The Grace Online Experience

The online campus at Grace College is designed to meet the needs of an increasing number of professionals who desire to further their education through distance learning at a well-respected Christian college with a traditional evangelical Christian worldview and a long history of academic excellence. Distance learning brings technology together with a classic curriculum and provides a new alternative to traditional learning methods for students who need fast, convenient and high-quality content delivery.

Online students have the opportunity to actively and creatively interact and communicate with each other and with their professors in a friendly virtual setting. They can also share knowledge, experiences, opinions and ideas with their classmates.

The online learning experience will be equally valuable and enriching for those who are shy and quiet as for those who are gregarious and social, since it allows each student to communicate his or her points in a comfortable and non-judgmental manner. The online learning environment at Grace minimizes inhibition and maximizes quality participation. Distance learners also have plenty of time to research, study and work on their projects. Taking online courses and completing an online program is beneficial for any adult - it is truly the way to go!
