Degrees & Certificates

What We Offer

University of Minnesota Online programs are equivalent to on-campus degrees and certificates, generally with the same instructors, program requirements, and curriculum. Your transcripts and diploma will reflect your U of M degree and will not indicate that the degree was obtained online.

Programs are offered either fully online, primarily online (short residency), or partially online (50-80% delivered online). Visit General Information for complete definitions.

Note: This may not be a comprehensive list of all the University of Minnesota's online and hybrid programs. Please check with the individual unit for additional offerings.
