The Value of SNHU’s Online Degrees

Accreditation

International recognition; distinction in home country; quality education

In the U.S., universities undergo voluntary, rigorous evaluation processes to demonstrate their high standards of academic quality by independent agencies recognized by the U.S. government in order to be awarded accreditation. Institutions that offer online, on-campus or hybrid courses are all eligible for accreditation.
SNHU is regionally accredited by SACSCOC. This level of accreditation is considered the most prestigious type of accreditation as the quality of academic standards and admissions criteria are generally the most rigorous. Regional accreditation is generally awarded to private nonprofit institutions and public, state-owned institutions.

20+ Years delivering excellence in course design

Designing the online learning experience requires experience and expertise. SNHU has delivered online courses for 20 years, and has Faculty, course designers and other learning experts drive the online course experience.

Online classes that follow an asynchronous learning format do not meet at a defined time each week. Instead, you’ll have the flexibility to do coursework when it makes sense for you within the framework of the course schedule.
For instance, at SNHU, courses in online degree programs are broken out by week-long modules with due dates clearly defined each week. You may choose to complete all assignments for that week within a two-day period or chip away at work throughout the week. Depending on whether you're a night owl or an early bird, you can find the time of day that's most convenient and productive for you.

Rather than an in-class discussion, you’ll use online forums for discussion posts and responses. There may be readings and additional resource materials, along with quizzes, academic papers, presentations and other assignments pertinent to specific areas of study.
