Online Learning

Online classes are an excellent option for students who want a flexible schedule or do not live in the Chicagoland area. Course materials can be accessed through the Web 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The Jarvis College of Computing and Digital Media's (CDM) online students complete the same weekly assignments and projects as on-campus students.

  • Same high quality experience: CDM does not differentiate between an online and on-campus student.
