Admission Requirements

Some people believe that distance education programs have no requirements for admission or that there are no prerequisites for an on-line degree program. Although this might be true in a very few cases, application procedures for enrollment into a distance education program are usually the same as those for an on-site program. In fact, if the institution offering the distance education program also offers campus-based programs, the requirements for applying will be exactly the same for both.

For admission to distance education programs, many institutions require satisfactory scores on admissions tests such as the Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT), the Graduate Record Examination (GRE), the Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT), and/or the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL). Application forms, similar to the ones you would fill out for an on-site program, are often required, along with transcripts showing your past educational performance. Letters of recommendation, application essays, statements of purpose, plus some other requirements, which vary from program to program, are often mandatory.

Many programs, before they accept applicants, require them to complete surveys and exercises in computer literacy. Consider spending some time practicing or refreshing any skills that you will need.

Once you are accepted into a program, it is important to find out what the arrangements are for receiving course materials and what the requirements are for promotion to the next level. Depending on the number of credits you transfer into the distance education program, you should be aware that, in general, completion of the program will take at least as long as completion of a program at a land-based site.
