At Emmanuel we recognize that the traditional college calendar and on-site course work format doesn’t always work for everyone. Online programs make education possible for so many of our non-traditional students; those that may be working or have a family to care for. If you’ve been thinking of finishing your college degree and have struggled with how to get to campus, arrange childcare, get away from work, or fit classes around the numerous other conflicts that exist, our online programs may be the solution for you.
