About Online Learning
Quality, Flexibility and Convenience
Our online courses are of the same high caliber and as academically challenging as those taught in our classrooms, and the credits earned are identical. The majority of St. John’s online courses are taught by full-time faculty, and all online instructors are certified to teach in this format. Guided by Quality Matters (QM), a nationally recognized quality assurance program for online courses, St. John’s employs the highest standards for the design and development of online curricula and faculty training in online teaching and learning.
US News & World Report has ranked St. John’s graduate business, graduate education, and undergraduate online programs in the top 50 nationwide in their respective categories and in the category of Best Online Programs for Veterans.
A Fully Supported Education
All of our online learning programs are supported by a full range of online student services such as online registration; advisement; financial aid; library resources; tutoring; bookstore; campus ministry and more. Our staff is trained to understand the complexities of being an adult, online learner and offers outstanding resources and support to our online students.

I have taken four online courses as a St. John’s student: Introduction to Hearing Science; Principles of Management; Observation Skills of Speech-Language Pathology and Audiology; and Principles of Economics II. I was motivated to participate in online learning because I switched my major as a sophomore and declared a minor as a junior, so I needed to fulfill several additional credits in order to graduate on time. I dedicated three to five hours to each online class per week. I appreciated that the syllabus for each class provided detailed information on assignments, including their due dates, so that I could plan accordingly. The online learning experience has been a successful one for me."
