Prospective Students

Lehigh University's Office of Distance Education has been committed to providing high-quality, academically-challenging online graduate degrees, certificates, and professional development courses to working professionals since 1992. Just like our on- campus programs, our online degrees are the same courses taught on campus. In fact, most of the courses are created directly from the campus classroom and include all the same requirements, assignments, and opportunities for interaction with the faculty and other students. 


Lehigh University’s distance education program provides the student with the same level of educational excellence for which Lehigh University is renowned and strives to maintain the same level of quality of instruction that is available to our on-campus students. All courses taken through the distance education program are the same courses taught on campus, and the diploma that is issued is identical to those for on-campus students.
