High Quality Instruction. Top-tier Faculty. The Spelman Difference.

It's the best of both worlds. All classes are taught by faculty trained in online instruction and underscore the top-tier education that has become Spelman's hallmark.


The Online Learning Advantage

Number 1

Benefits That Yield Lasting Returns

One of the real advantages of taking Spelman online courses vs. online courses at other institutions is that when classes are taken anywhere else, those courses come into Spelman as transfer credit hours only. The grades themselves do not contribute to students' Spelman GPA (so two As elsewhere do not add to your GPA at Spelman). The Spelman online courses advantage is that our online courses DO count towards GPAs.
Number 2
Another benefit of taking classes online is flexibility. Some of our courses are synchronous or “live,” which means that everyone in the class is online at the same time. Other courses are fully asynchronous, where students log on according to their schedule. Still other courses have components of both (hybrid). Look for those designations with the course descriptions. The class sizes at Spelman are also limited, which helps to maintain our goal of quality over quantity.
