Online Learning Details

What’s it like to learn online at Notre Dame de Namur University (NDNU)? Thanks to our user-friendly suite of interactive, online learning tools and a dedicated team of faculty and staff for support, it’s not much different than on-campus education. With NDNU’s online programs, however, you can earn your degree in a manner that offers more convenience and flexibility than traditional classroom-based programs.

As an online student at Notre Dame de Namur University, you’ll have access to all the support that is available to on-campus learners, including academic advising and financial aid counseling. Plus, online students get live, 24/7 technical support to make sure you are able to work when you need to.

All online coursework and exams will be completed inside our web-based learning system. You’ll submit assignments through the system and participate in lively discussion forums to connect with other students and professors to ask questions, exchange ideas and discuss thoughts on the course material.

Help is never far away if you need it. Professors are dedicated to helping you achieve your educational and professional goals and are available via email, discussion boards, and even the phone. Since 1851, NDNU has been proud to give students the support they need to succeed, and that commitment is the same for online students. In fact, every online student is paired with a dedicated faculty advisor who can provide academic guidance and career advice throughout the entire online degree program.
