Curricular Programs

This section describes the curricular programs available through Global Campus. Because each program is structured to meet the needs of the group being served, not every degree program, certificate, or option is available at every program center. Specific information about individual program offerings is available in center offices. A general listing of the programs available at centers can be found at

Undergraduate Degree Programs

Students wishing to earn their baccalaureate degree at Central Michigan University via it’s Global Campus may do so in multiple ways. A student may elect to participate in the classroom-based courses offered at program centers. Other students may choose to complete courses through various distance learning activities. Many students combine the two approaches. Whichever approach the student elects, the student's progress toward the degree will be monitored by an academic advisor who will be assigned at the time of admission.
