Linda Christas Online College Programs

Admissions Information


online college learnersLinda Christas College's online learning is interactive. Students complete one course at a time in sequence.

Our Online Campus is the result of the College's recognition of the dramatic transformations that have taken place in the academic environment since 1990.

The US Department of Education's studies have demonstrated that the Linda Christas format is superior to the traditional classroom, if education is the goal of the experience. That is, for many college freshmen, education is secondary to being away from home for the first time. In that situation, college becomes a maturing period as opposed to focusing on the kinds of things Linda Christas is best at delivering. As a result, traditional four years of college is much more expensive, since housing and sports teams and all the other programs a traditional college provides are necessary to attract students using college as a maturation experience.

However, in the final analysis, students cannot earn a living sitting in the stands watching sports teams. They must offer employers solid skills, skills that, unfortunately, more than 50% of today's college graduates lack.

Online College StudentMature high school graduates, and working adults who have some college in their backgrounds are increasingly seeking a college format that does not require their immediate presence at one geographical location. In other words, many current students require that colleges build academic experiences around their, the students', schedules, rather than the other way around.

In order to respond to this demand, Linda Christas College has designed a system of study whereby students and instructors interact electronically, resulting in increased access to professors than would be possible in a traditional classroom setting.

The Linda Christas Online College allows students to work on their courses, no matter where or when they have the opportunity.

Formats used to complete the Associates, Bachelor's, Master's and Doctoral Degrees are:
