Learning Online is Similar to Learning On Campus
Students who learn online earn the same credits and degrees as students taking classes on campus. As an online student, you have access to all Delgado resources and opportunities as you work towards meeting your educational and professional goals!
Choosing between an online or on-campus class depends on the student. For some, the business of work and family makes online learning a good option. For others, taking an online class is a chance to use the Internet and technology to drive their own learning forward.
