DIVISION OF EXTENDED ACADEMIC PROGRAMS

Division of Extended Academic Programs
The division of Extended Academic Programs’ (EAP) emphasis is to make high quality educational opportunities readily available to working adults who wish to obtain their university degree or gain professional certifications. EAP has the capability to expand both programmatically and geographically to meet the professional development needs of local and global populations. Developing new delivery formats for existing majors, designing new majors through joint agreements with other educational institutions and businesses, and developing non-degreed professional certifications are only a few of the opportunities offered.

Students in this program are active duty military, so age restrictions will not always apply when they are demonstrated to be good candidates for the online learning environment.

Additionally, they are not limited to 24 semester hours, per institutional agreement with the U.S. Army. Conditions for admission, both Conditional and Unconditional, are identical to those stated above.
