Courses

TRU-OL offers 55 programs and 590 courses by distance learning. Many courses are available by continuous registration, so you may register throughout the year, while other courses are paced, with specific start and end dates.

Summer Session

Are you planning to take one of our courses and transfer the credit to a program at another institution? Many students like to do so in order to complete a course over the summer, avoid waitlists or accommodate a busy schedule. We recommend that you confirm with your program advisor that the course meets your program requirements before you register.

Please note, not all courses may be currently available for registration.
