Questions about ASU's virtual classes

  • How can I apply for digital learning?

    The application process remains the same: complete our online application form, selecting your preferred ASU degree or pathway program. You can submit your application to Kaplan even if you can’t get all your supporting documents ready at this time.

  • How do I enroll in digital courses?

    After you have paid your deposit, an ASU advisor will help you to register for the correct courses in a digital format. You will join a live, interactive virtual orientation session before you begin studying. The courses you take digitally will be the first credits toward your full program.

  • Can I continue without a study gap?

    ASU’s primary goal is for all students to progress toward their academic goals uninterrupted. With digital learning, you can stay on track without delaying your education plans. When you are able to travel to the USA, you can transition all your credits and continue the rest of your program on campus.

  • What programs can I study remotely?

    All ASU bachelor’s degrees and master’s degrees will be offered in a digital format. Additionally, Global Launch programs will be available online: Intensive English, ASU-USA Pathways program and the International Graduate Preparation Program.

    The same courses you would take in an on-campus program are available digitally, and all your courses will be led by ASU’s inspiring faculty.

  • How are remote classes delivered?

    Classes may be taught live on videoconference by an ASU faculty member with real-time class discussion. Some classes are asynchronous, meaning lectures are pre-recorded and can be taken at your own pace to fit your schedule.

  • Must I study full-time with digital learning?

    If you are a degree student enrolling remotely for the Summer or Fall semester, you can choose full-time study or take a reduced credit load initially, to continue work or other commitments while you stay in your home country.

    If you are studying digitally with ASU Global Launch, you must enroll full-time. In the summer semester, this is 21 hours per week in the Remote Intensive English Program, and 24 hours per week in the International Graduate Preparation Program.

  • Does ASU have expertise in delivering classes virtually?

    ASU is an industry leader in online education. The University has an award-winning digital delivery track record and is committed to high-quality remote learning. In the first month of remote, digital delivery, more than 150,000 Zoom teaching sessions were run for full-time students.

  • Can I get help with the digital learning technology?

    You will have access to 24/7 student support from ASU if you need any help with its remote learning platform.

Questions about Pace University's online classes

  • How can I apply for digital learning?

    The application process remains the same: complete our online application form, selecting your preferred Pace degree or pathway program. You can submit your application to Kaplan even if you can’t get all your supporting documents ready at this time.

  • What and when can I study remotely?

    All Pace programs – bachelor’s degrees, master’s degrees, Global Pathways and Intensive English – are available for remote enrollment.

    Classes are asynchronous, which means you get to decide the schedule that fits you best.

    If you’re a degree student, you can choose to take classes part time initially. This will allow you to continue work or other commitments while you stay in your home country.

  • Are online courses the same quality as on-campus instruction?

    Yes. You’ll take the same classes – taught by the same faculty and professors – that you would on campus. Pace is committed to providing the same exceptional educational experience for all Pace students, whether they study online or onsite.

    In addition to expert online instruction, you’ll also receive one-on-one advising support and have access to some of the student services that you’ll enjoy once you transition to campus, including career development, the University library, tutoring services, and the IT Help Desk.

  • Does Pace have expertise in delivering classes virtually?

    Offering online university programs since 1999, Pace understands what it takes for students to succeed in the digital learning environment. The University’s online bachelor’s degree programs have been top-rated for 8 years in a row.

    As part of the University’s commitment to online learning excellence, Pace faculty undergo in-depth training to become expert online instructors.

  • How much does online learning cost?

    Tuition rates are the same as on-campus study. You take the same program and enjoy the same high quality of teaching and support, whether your classes are delivered in person or remotely.

    However, you will save money while studying online because you will not need US health insurance nor to pay some of the standard university fees. Additionally, any scholarship awarded to you at admission is valid for online learning.

  • How do I enroll in Pace digital courses?

    If you have been admitted directly to a degree, you must pay your tuition deposit before you are able to register for online classes. Registration opens several weeks before the semester begins. In your acceptance email, you will receive instructions on the next steps to activate your account, and will be contacted by a Pace advisor to help you select courses.

    If you have been admitted to Global Pathways, you do not need to register because you will study set courses in your pathway program. You will be automatically enrolled in digital learning before classes begin.

    All students should attend an online international student orientation at the start of their program.

  • How does online learning work at Pace?

    All courses can be accessed through Blackboard, the online learning platform used by Pace. View these Blackboard learning tutorial videos.

    Pace’s online courses are designed to give you full flexibility through independent work combined with collaborative sessions involving classmates and professors.

  • What are the technical requirements?

    To study in Pace’s online programs, you need, at a minimum, a computer with sufficient memory and storage to support required software programs, a reliable internet connection, a webcam and a headset.
