Why study online?

Every student’s experience should be enriching and memorable. As an online student at Dickinson State, you will have access to the same exceptional services as a face-to-face student, like tutoring and advising. You will participate in high-quality courses and make lasting connections with your instructors and classmates.

“I highly recommend taking an online class at DSU. I did not take a single face-to-face class from my favorite professor, Dr. Debora Dragseth, but she made her online classes fun, informative, and interesting. I learned just as much from her class if not more than I did from my face-to-face classes.” – Claire Shoffit, Master of Entrepreneurship

Online classes are convenient and flexible, allowing you to fit your education to your lifestyle. However, this doesn’t mean online classes are easy. You’ll need to manage your time and be self-disciplined. The skills you will develop and the knowledge you will acquire through online learning at Dickinson State will ensure a successful future after graduation.

“While working full time and living away from campus, Dickinson State University’s online classes give me the flexibility of being able to do my homework around my schedule while offering the benefits of face-to-face lecture through videos that you are able to go back and rewatch if you miss the live version.” – Chelsey Ruud, Bachelor of Business Administration in Human Resource Management
