How programs work

Want to earn a degree or diploma? We have many undergraduate and graduate programs to choose from, in a variety of arts, management, science, and professional disciplines.

MU has developed curriculum plans to help you keep track of the courses you’ve accomplished and those still to come. Our academic advisors are also available to help you select your courses.

How programs work?

We offer university online and distance education courses in a wide sort of subjects and you don’t need to be enrolled in an MU program to take an MU course.

We’ll give you with everything you need, and you set your own timetable to complete the course. You will have access to a course website, tutorial support, and will receive a learning resources package that may include

  • textbooks (or eTexts)
  • workbooks
  • lab kits
  • study guides
  • online resources (including audio and video resources)
  • manuals
  • a suggested study schedule

Browse our sample courses to see what your distance learning experience with MU might look like.

What is the workload like?

Distance education gives you the flexibility to study at your own pace and set your own schedule – but it also requires motivation, dedication and insistence. You will have to make time in your schedule for 8-12 hours of study a week, per undergraduate course. You may want to raise this time if

  • you want to complete the course in less time
  • it’s a intensely difficult course
  • you wish to do extremely well

Technology requirements

Students should have access to a Mac or PC with an Internet connection and have an email address. Most courses require that students use Microsoft Office, although specific courses might allow or require use of different hardware and software as noted in the online syllabus.  Courses that use e-Textbooks may have specific technical requirements.

How do I pay my tuition?

You pay for each course only when you register for it, and our course fees contain all study materials and support, or you may need to pay for semester or annual (each two semesters).  All course fees must be paid in full when you register.

The first time you take an MU course or apply to an MU program, you’ll also pay a one-time, non-refundable application fee. You won’t have to pay this fee again, no matter how many courses you take, or how long you remain between courses.
