How long will it take to earn my degree?
The time it takes to complete your degree depends on your choices from semester to semester. You will have choices about the number of semester credits you take, and about taking accelerated classes. The average full-time student can complete the program in one to two years.
Do I have to live in Ohio?
No. Face-to-face activity is confined to attendance at the three-day residency at the start of each semester you are enrolled in (3 per year). Residencies are at our designated retreat center. Aside from this, the flexibility of our online programs allow students to attend class from anywhere in the world.

What type of computer and technology skills do I need?
Students are required to have a computer with internet access (laptop needed at first residency with wireless capability), and the MS Office software suite of applications. Firefox is the preferred browser for maximum performance with AUM’s online course management program.
Students are expected to have the following basic technological skills upon entrance into the program.
- Use an internet browser and a search engine
- Use basic word processing in Microsoft Word (this is required software)
- Send and receive email with and without attached documents
Will I be missing the give and take of a conventional classroom?
We offer a highly personal and interactive learning experience. Many students find our programs more interactive and engaging than sitting in a classroom because every student has the opportunity to participate.
You will interact with faculty and students in weekly online and phone discussions. Instructors are available via e-mail, or phone, during the course if needed. Written feedback on assignments is another way that faculty members interact with learners. Additional opportunities to connect with faculty occur during the required 3-day residencies (see above).
How will I be supported as an adult learner in an online program.
There are several support services available to students, including a writing center and tech support. Our faculty and staff are easily accessible and always willing to help. In addition, advisors help you plan your program, adjust the plan as needed, and assist with any other academic matters.
Do you use letter grades or a pass-fail system?
We use a pass-fail system. Your work in a course either meets, or doesn’t meet, graduate level expectations equivalent to a B or better grade. To pass means you demonstrated your accomplishment of course learning objectives. No letter grades are issued. If your employer requires letter-grade-equivalents, your instructors supply them.
For more detailed information please review Academic Evaluation and Letter Grade Equivalency Policy.
