Distance Learning

In this Section


Clarkson University offers several distance learning graduate study opportunities in business, engineering and science.  Many programs offer flexible, full-time or part-time matriculated study, while several individual courses are available to non-matriculated (non-degree) students. 

Virtual technology and a committed Clarkson community makes distance learning a successful option for working professionals looking to expand their educational experience.

Clarkson offers a range of distance learning course delivery modes.  Depending on the needs of the course curriculum or program requirements, students either attend class synchronously with on-campus peers OR they meet in virtual classrooms as the instructor leads a lecture and group discussion. Distance learning students view recorded lectures ayschronously and interface with faculty for homework and assignments.  Group projects with classmates are facilitated through interactive technologies widely available in today's workplace.  Occasional visits to campus can be anticipated as students fulfill research requirements.

Join the Clarkson community as a distance learning student and enjoy full access to Clarkson's Alumni network, Career Services, Libraries, and more.


The Wallace H. Coulter School of Engineering, the School of Business, and the School of Arts & Sciences at Clarkson each has its own admission process, application requirements, and deadlines.
