What to expect from an online university

Online learning at Spring Arbor University offers busy adults the opportunity to better their lives through flexible and convenient education. You can study from the comfort of your own home, during break at work, in the car waiting for your children to get out of school and after the family has gone to bed. Morning, noon or night – whenever inspiration strikes – from anywhere with an Internet connection.

In most cases, Spring Arbor University online programs can be completed entirely online through the use of a Web browser.  Some professional programs do require a residency and some have clinical experiences but we work closely with you to assure your success.

While we’re not the only university to offer online degree programs, our distinction lies in our total commitment to providing educational excellence within a Christ-honoring and supportive online community.
