September of 1892 saw the doors of Central Michigan University open to 31 students ready for formal training in teaching. The following century brought much change and expansion for the university and in 1994, the first online degree programs were added. Central Michigan is now one of the nation’s top 100 largest universities and has 60 locations in North America. More than 28,300 students are enrolled at Central Michigan University — more than 7,000 of which are enrolled through the Global Campus. Online certificates and degrees at the bachelor’s, master’s, and doctoral levels are offered to distance learners through the Global Campus.

Programs Offered

Students can choose from several popular areas of study, including administration, leadership, psychology, and health. Through Blackboard, the online learning platform, students can remotely access course materials, study, complete and submit assignments, and participate in group/professor discussions. The flexibility of self-determined study times allows even the busiest working adults to earn a degree on a schedule customized to fit their needs. Without sacrificing quality or accreditation, the online degree programs enable distance learners to achieve their academic goals despite the demands that might otherwise prohibit them from obtaining a degree the traditional way. The university and faculty members are committed to ensuring every online student receives the same support and assistance as campus-attending students.


Central Michigan University is accredited by the Higher Learning Commission of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools.
