We’re so excited you are taking the next step to accomplish your goals and make your dreams a reality. Dr. Sharon Synan, our Director of Distance Learning has this message for you today.


I am thrilled you have chosen to visit our website for Emmanuel Online. Emmanuel College celebrated 100 years of educational excellence in 2019.  It seems fitting that Emmanuel Online College would begin in the Centennial year.  It is truly a dynamic time in our institution’s history.

The foundation of Emmanuel Online is built upon the values and mission established by the founders of Emmanuel College.  We are wholly engaged in providing a transformative educational experience; one that draws on our faith and assurance of Jesus Christ.  Our programs of study include an associate’s degree in General Education, bachelor’s degrees in Business Administration, Christian Ministry, and Criminal Justice with a minor in Homeland Security.  We offer these degrees in a flexible online program created with you in mind, all while weaving faith into every facet of every program.  Emmanuel views you as an individual and our desire is to meet you where you are.  We strive to partner with you on your journey to achieve your educational goals.  We will stand with you; you will not be alone in your academic progress.

We are fully SACSCOC accredited and a member of NCSARA.  Emmanuel Online provides a rigorous, supportive online community, thanks to a dedicated team of faculty, staff, and administrators.  I look forward to the years ahead as we continue to be a place where excellence is the standard on-campus and online.

Please enjoy exploring our website and contact us directly if you’d like to learn more. We would love to hear from you!
